as a ZFS?

Code:
 cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg
dir: local
        path /var/lib/vz
        content iso,images,rootdir,vztmpl
        maxfiles 0

dir: zpool-big
        path /zpool-big
        content backup,vztmpl,iso,rootdir,images
        maxfiles 3

zfspool: zpool-big_zfs
        pool zpool-big
        nodes vm3
        content images,rootdir
What are rpool/ROOT/pve-1,rpool/ROOT,rpool for?

You can create ZFS there as shown in the picture?

Yes, that is not a (technical) problem, because ZFS is a tree and every leaf or branch can be used to create new zfs datasets (leaves or branches). Best to use a dedicated ZFS dataset as "entry point" for PVE ZFS, like it is done with the default proxmox dataset.
