If i am reading this correctly you are using an allocation based capacity model and if so it is working as expected.
Lets use your example you have no CPU left as all is allocated but you have memory left why would you want to deploy more VMs if you have allocated all your cpu regardless of how much memory is left.
The allocation is based on what is require to be allocated to a VM not just one compute resource. The allowed you co specify a hard limit for over allocation. If you feel you could get more VMs on the hosts then change the ratios in the policy for CPU.
to your second question
The only reservation you can apply is the HA buffers. This is either a hard % of resources or using the cluster HA settings. With out seeing a screenshot it is hard to say what the problem is
Thanks for this!
