Any link / document to talk about the Storage Foundation HA 5.1 SP1 for Windows when upgrading the Netbackup 7.5.X

It's all in the upgrade portal. We don't mention specific versions of SF as we don't care which version of SF you're at (as long as it's supported). The method is the same.

Refer NetBackup in a VCS Chapter under NBU 7.5 Admin Guide Clustered Master Server

Guide should be enough for you to upgrade your environment

Note: When you upgrade NetBackup on cluster, NetBackup resource goes into
faulted state. You must clear the fault after upgrade is complete.
Read and follow chapters carefully.

Seems you want to migrate from physical to virtual and upgrade all in one go?

You have 2 choices:
First upgrade on current physical nodes, then upgrade.
Else, migrate to VMs using current NBU version, then upgrade.

Both options will require that you install and config VCS, then Install NBU as clustered master using same virtual hostname as in original installation patch to same version as original installation, followed by catalog recovery.

NBU installation and upgrade of clustered master is covered in NBU Installation Guide as well as NBU clustered master server guide.
