Hi Morgan!

>-1. Is it necessary to have VT technologie in the processeur ?
Depending what technology you will chose.
If you choose VMware, this is not mandatory. If you shoose MS HyperV or
Xen - yes, your processor should have built-in virtualization support

>-2. Is it necessary to have a modified file/kernell to install it in the VM ?

again depends on the platform, which will choose

I think if your goal is to maintaining 10+ vm the best choise is
something like this:

CPU.......4 x Intel quad core CPU server (this should be enough for 15
and more VMs)
RAM......2GB x every VM + 1 GB for hosted platform
HDD......depending of needs of every VM, but 50-80 Gb x every VM should
be enough.
Perhaps some external SAN is best storage solution for your needs.

My preferences are to VMware ESXi server (for bare bone installation)
At the end, I want to clarify that this is my personal opinion based on
experience and I do not claim that the most faithful.

Best regards
