as a testing i created some VM's..installed using iso.. some just created but didnt use etc. now want to clear all and maintain only in use.

i want to delete them without affecting other working VM's. how to do this?
I don't see anything critic with the config.

But you are not following the best practices. E1000 instead of virtio NIC, IDE instead of SCSI, no discard and no guest agent (meaning no consistent snapshot-mode backups...). See:

@ wiki team: Would be great to have a Win11 best practices so I can link to that instead of Win 10 or Win 2022.
