You could script the creation of a new SharePoint VM and the automatic joining to the farm as a WFE. You would then need to somehow let your load balancer know about this new node. While technically possible, this would be pretty complex and very fragile. Your second idea sounds a bit easier. Just because a server is configured as a WFE doesn't mean you ...

I had the same problem when running IE on the server and opening the Central Admin URL. Went to all Programs/Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products/SharePoint 2010 Central Administration and ran that as an Administrator and had no problems adding users. I was also able to add users when I used a workstation to add users via the URL.

In Central Administration, you can see the "Manage Servers in farm". This displays servers, their roles and a summary of services running on each server. You can also view Search Topology through Search Administration. However, there is no content in Central admin which displays complete architecture information.

If you are not currently connected to the farm (a.k.a. config database) the passphrase cannot be recovered or changed. It can only be done so by server currently joined to the farm. You will have to recreate your farm configuration. You can, however, setup your web applications and service applications from the databases you do have backed up.

Your root question sounds like a basic network connection. You can configure the network connectivity for your VM to allow connections to the network which would allow others to connect to it (along with you) from the browser on their computers. I would not recommend running a VM on your computer as a production environment even for a small team. If you ...

Not really, no. You can only set up one SharePoint instance per box, that instance can only point to one farm, and you can't really prevent it from adding IIS sites to every server. It's just how SharePoint works. One thing you can do if you really want to cordon off which users go to which WFE is to set that up with a non-SharePoint load balancer.

Do you mean the Farm Configuiration Wizard in Central Admin? The general consensus on the FCW is, use it very sparingly. It's fine if you want a quick overview of SharePoint or you are setting up a non-specific Dev workstation. The Wizard uses a bunch of default settings that go against most enterprise best practices, most notably using the same accounts ...

As long as your VM infrastructure is good enough to support the memory, CPU, and data throughput required for your farm, you can virtualized the SQL server without sacrificing performance. You need to ensure your VM farm has enough available resources to dedicate to the SQL server and not be overloaded with other VMs taking RAM away from the SQL VM. Also, ...
