you cant limit any host to stop sharing resources. you can completely remove the host to not use the resources or keep it share.

Yes you can do reservation, share etc to control over cpu usages.

i mean  host 2 less cpu power , but better network.

so we want to use host 1 CPU resource but use host 2 network and datastore

yeah. its not really possible to limit a host specific resource until you eliminate it.

but still if you want you can try it by using this setting. VMware vSphere 4 - ESX and vCenter Server

see if that works for you.

let t say

the DRS, if host 1 got 10% cpu usage, datastore already use 90% , host2 cpu 90% daatastore used 20%

how DRS  will work

DRS moves the machine not the Datastore of the vms if they are on shared storage.it do onlyl you configure the Storage DRS

Also DRS moves on the cpu and memory usage only. so it will move from host 2 to host 1 in  your case. no datastore changes will happen.

you need shared storage for cluster to migrate VMs.

without shared storage, you can run cluster but will not be able to migrate VMs back and forth.

Well without shared storage its not possible to get it work. DRS will run but no storage migration.also no Ha will work in this case.so I will suggest you to make shared storage if its a lab use solarwind storage else buy a storage .
