What is NetBackup for VMware?
I'm looking for a right solution for my virtual infrastructure (I have NBU Enterprise 6.5 and VI3). I found some documents about NetBackup for VMware. What is NetBackup for VMware? Is it a built-in feature in my NBU Enterprise license? Do Ie need to buy any other license to use NetBackup for VMware (Ie also have NBU Enterprsie Client 6.5 for Linux)?

NetBackup for VMware is more an umbrella name. It is the integration with VCB/vStorage (depending on VMware/NetBackup versions). It includes features like VM's auto discovery, off-host backup (done on VCB proxy in fact), granular restore ...
In your case (VI3), you need to install VCB on a Windows host. Regarding licensing (as of NBU 6.5, changed in NBU 7.0), you need to license 1x Enterprise Client per guest OS type and 1x database / application pack per database and/or application type per VMWare host.
For instance, let's assume that you have 2 ESX hosts as follows:
ESX1: 10 windows VM's, 5 Linux VM's, Oracle, Exchange, SQL Server
---> 2x Enterprise Client (Windows + Linux), 3x database pack (Oracle, Exchange, SQL Server)
ESX2: 5 windows VM's, SQL Server
---> 1x Enterprise Client (Windows), 1x database pack (SQL Server)
Note: Database/application pack does not include SAP agent which is licensed apart.
All that changed with NBU 7.0. It is now 1x Enterprise Client per ESX host + 1x database/application pack (if any database / application running within VM) no matter how many different guest OS or database / application you have running within VM's.
