I normally use Intel but you should be able to check VMWare hardware compatability list.
I've just installed Intel Gigabit PRO/1000CT in a HP N40L MicroServer and also installed HP G6 Single Port NC112T PCIe Gigabit Server Adapter in a N36L without issues

Always used Intel PRO NICs with no issues either. I have a couple of HP dev boxes running ESXi 4.0 with Intel PRO/1000 GT desktop adapters.

You want to be in the vsphere client, on the host under configuration, networking.
You will need to add a new virtual switch connected to the NIC.

management network is different to the actual machine networking, although it can be on the same subnet and be used as the network for guests.
