    The requirement is 3 datacenter objects "managed by vCenter". Is your third option managed by vCenter? If not, then not likely this is going to work.

    There is an option used for labs (not supported or recommended for production) to get around this requirement. So, if you are asking for the purpose of a lab, this may be an option.

    Yes. It is possible.
    Instead of the automatic method, you can proceed with the manual method.
