you posted, what customizations would I need?
as for my other questions, I was unable to find Config Settings for mod_cband equivalent, and for mod_deflate equivalent on a per Vhost Basis. I did find a general setting on which files to compress but not a per Vhost Setting to let Vhost 1 compress html&php and let Vhost 2 only use compression on txt files.
