First of all you will need to be licensed with vSphere Essentials Plus or above. Assuming you have that vMotion is already included and installed by default but you will need to create a new port group on your vSwitch and enable vMotion. Once you have a port group created for vMotion traffic you need to create a vmkernel adapter and enable vMotion on it steps are described in the KB below.

Ensure you ou configure your hosts consistently.
