Depending of your guest OS you can add hot add CPU and memory, but to remove you will need to power off the virtual machine. The following blog post shows a table with all possibilities based on guest OS: vSphere Memory Hot Add/CPU Hot Plug » boche.net – VMware vEvangelist

Hot-add will also need to have been previously enabled via VM settings before this can be used. If you have not already enabled it, you need to shutdown the VM to do so.
