Within VRNI is there any way to find a specific packet and its contents?

with VRNI? Thank you.

VRNI is Flow collector based on IPFIX format, so on the GUI of VRNI it may not show the flow, but the statistics about the flow.

For flow details, NSX pktcap-uw and tcpdump-uw may be used as link below:

With NSX 6.4, it is easier from the GUI instead of CLI:
