Here is a great site that contains a lot of vSphere link, http://vsphere-land.com/news/vsphere-41-the-links.html.  What exactly is your problem?

I am not sure about vSphere 5, but VMotion across datacenters are  not supported, only cloning supports.

Yeah you are talking about long distance vMotion.  It is possible and has been supported for a long time now.  Depending on your bandwidth, latency and a few other factors it works well.

Here is an old yellowbricks link.  I don't think much has changed.
