Why do you want to avoid number argument? If you do so, the backend code will receive 'undefined' for argument value, and it is not clear what will happen. In this case, you can simply pass value 0.

Not sure what you mean by needing to type VcTask. This is the type of the result returned when you execute this method, so you don't need to type it, just assign it to some variable like this:

var task = esxiHost.exitMaintenanceMode_Task(0); // task variable contains the method call result of type VcTask

Note that VcTask result type means the method execution is likely to take some amount of time, so if you want to wait until the task completes, you need to use the result variable to periodically check the status of the task. Usually, it is done using out of the box scripting action vim3WaitTaskEnd
