You can make a flexclone of a file - I'm not sure if that can be done through the VSC tool or if it would need to be done via command line. There might need to be some extra coordination to ensure the activitiy on that vmdk disk is quiesced while the clone is taken.
Yes, that TR should have the commands you'll need. At least from the point of view of generating the command to create clone of the vmdk file. The parts outside of that - of making sure the clone is good and then connecting it to another server will require a bit of creativity on your part. Not impossible to do with some help from the Vmware PowerCLI command set.
