Hi Muhammad,

See a recent thread on this list 'Vmware to Proxmox migration" and 
especially the answer from Ernst Holger. He meant to use the backup 
program from Vmware, to store the backup to a network share (NFS...), 
then use the backup program from proxmox, and the function 'restore', to 
restore the VM on Proxmox. Martin Maurer tested it and agreed it was the 
easiest solution.

For the growable image file, it seems it is possible to convert it with 
vmware vdisk-manager. See for example this thread :
