best way to present storage to nested guests on one SSD?

Here is what I have so far:

Got plenty of ram & cpu, no worries there. I have 161gb of space left for the following:
  • 2, or even 3 ESXi "hosts"
  • 2 - 4 guests on each host
  • another linked clone for a 2nd vcenter server to test out linked mode
  • vcenter appliance
If I can leave out any of the above and still fulfill the objectives, please let me know.

Am I better off setting up a NAS for the ESXi hosts to use as a datastore on the remaining 161gb of space, or carving out vmdks for them to use?

The DC and vcenter server are linked clones. Can I build an ESXi host and make the 2nd host a linked clone?

I've got 3 1TB 7200 RPM sata drives. Right now they're just storing ISOs. Should I make use of them for some of the VMs, or stuff everything on to the 256GB ssd?
Climb a mountain, tell no one.
