Yes, but as Oracle is saying that when you run on VMWare, you may only look at the hardware, is it then to be considered as a cluster?

I thought Michael was both clear and correct. You can't run RAC SE as you describe because the cluster has more than 4 sockets. The cluster is the normal definition of cluster - that is the group of machines working together to provide services transparently. It most definitely doesn't refer to individual resources within the cluster - such as a RAC instance.
