i installed windows11 in VM of proxmox 8.

I have few requirements. how to achieve these? many will be noob question..apologies for that as i am new here...

1) i have other windows users in lan. i want them to access this VM windows which will act as server to store and access files used for windows. how to setup sharing of VM windows 11 to regular windows users?

2) Windows 11 is installed as VM in proxmox. in the server itself if i want to open and see windows how to do? i had truenas installed gave a IP to open in browser. I believe even i server too VM can be accessed only thru browser or else any other option possible?

3) we use certain softwares in windows which are sql based etc. Now i have to instal them in installed on windows server PC ...then we used to type the url or "local host" or such address in browser then software used to get opened in all lan windows PC. now how to enable such in VM windows too to work for such?

4) is there any possibility to make like if any usb pen drive are put the windows VM also recognise and behave to open the pendrive like any windows even in VM. coz now i insert any pen drive i dont see any option nor it opens. each time i cant mount a pen drive as we use data transfer regularly and pen drive usb may be varying.

5) use digital signatures too. when insert it dont recognise at all.

6) currently had put 75 gb for windows. how to increase it to 100gb or more? I like to have multiple drives like d/e/f etc. how to add space for such coz diskmgmt.msc doesnt show balance space in ssd itself when open in VM.
