    You can't host a website in VPS (actually you can but it involves huge effort and money, it will be like a research work for you). VPS is just like a computer, but located some whr away from you. You can run only software and other things what you can do from your home computer.

    yes you can host your wordpress site and any kind of SEO software in Windows VPS but you have to do some research while using windows vps overall windows vps is easier to use then linux vps.

    You can host a website on a VPS but I would advise against using a VPS for both hosting and running tools.
    Get shared hosting for your site and use a VPS for tools.

    yes you can
    firstly you need to install a php server on vps
    i would recommend wamp its free and easy to configure
    sql part might be little tough but never tried

    however dont use vps unless you are getting huge traffic on wordpress
    it wont be worth the efforts
    simply get a shared hosting plan from any reputed providers

    Yes You can, install a cpanel for windows like enkompass and start from there. But I wouldn't recommend sharing your seo tools with your website server. SEO tools sometimes crash the machine and it might also result on your site downtime.

    You can use the windows VPS to host a wordpress site easily by installing Plesk and also install software without any issues
