Is it even possible? How would I go about this?
Yes, it is indeed possible. You need to go to where VMWare stores the virtual machine files (commonly documents > virtual machines), go to the folder of the VM that the scambait will be done on then find the file that has the .vmx extension on it. Open it with Notepad, then add a row then type smbios.reflecthost=“TRUE” (with the quotes)
It is still unknown on how to change from "Virtual machine: Yes" to "No" on the task manager of the VM, aside from deleting the entire task manager application.
