For VGT mode vlan is supported by default same as bare-metal.
For VST you need to use ip tool to configure VST vlan:  ip link set
eth<X> vf 1 vlan 2 qos 2

note: VGT mode will not work on VF if VST is configured on that VF.

No,
Nothing is required for VGT mode, just create the vlan on guest VF
machine and work with it!
E-Swtich is automatically/dynamically configured.

How did you do this ? changed the code ? by default (no VST/no spoof
check) ACL tables should not be opened.

Strange, should work. Please make sure VST mode is off on the VF.
can you share some logs with us:
on PF/VF and remote dedicated driver:

ip link show <interface>
ethtool -k <interface>

Thanks,
