How does the nova manage the vmware hypervisor(esxi host)? Is the nova is directly installed the esxi host ? Or the nova is installed the another linux host,and then indirectly control the esxi host by configuring the remote ip address(not of the esxi host?

besides the OpenStack official documentation, I think you'll find an answer to your doubts on this blog post by Rackspace Architecting VMware vSphere For OpenStack.

Both should work, what I use is install openstack on a linux machine and then control the esxi by setting it as the hypervisor, this blog may help
