However, I have a vSphere 7 Essentials Plus license for each of my servers. I have 2 Esxi hosts connected to my vsphere, while the "vSphere 7 Essentials Plus license" allows 3 ....

You need vSphere Enterprise Plus licenses for your hosts to use a Distributed Switch, see page 2: https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/products/vsphere/vmw-edition-compa...

With „vSphere 7 Essentials Plus” you don’t have the Distributed Switch (required for LAG) feature. The limitation is on the Host itself, not on the vCenter. On your print screen you see that your Host are not compatible, that’s mean they don’t have the required license
