If you are only using DFW and your workloads are on VLANs you do not need edges. You do, however, need the unified appliance which consists of NSX-T Manager+Controller. Besides this you have to prepare your host so they get an N-VDS and then you can connect your VMs to VLAN backed segments.

Does the uplink of the N-VDS support the trunk mode?

It does, but please do not mix different questions on the same topic, as this makes it harder for others to find the answers.

Could you please post this question on a separate topic and I will be happy to answer it.
