You can use MagicISO to create the flp file. Once you download and open magiciso you can go to file -> new -> Disk Image and select 1.44 MB which will open a window for you to add your files to the just go to file save as and give it whatever file name you need with .flp at the end. After you have your flp file you just upload that to the desired datastore and then you can browse it from the vm settings when you look for floppy image file.

You can use MagicISO to do this. Just start the program and select File -> New -> Disk Image and select 1.44 MB then give your disk a title (I gaveLSIXPDRV in picture) and add your files to that and then save as whatever filename you want with .flp at the end.

Remember (as you also write in the subject) that are not recommended for guest OS disk.

You can use for other disks, but in this case you will have the driver with the VMware Tools.
