I'm not sure whether using a 4 socket server will work, but even if it's possible from a technical point of view, I will most likely violate the license agreement, which allows 3 host with up to 2 CPUs.

can vsphere essential kit 7 license be apply on it or i need to buy vsphere essential kit 6.

No, but you can downgrade licenses (and later upgrade them again) in your My VMware portal to get the required license keys.

If you know it's a violation, you shouldn't be doing it even if it works.
