How to image and restore the SD card in a Kobo device has been discussed many times here. The thread I usually refer people to is Memory Upgrade Mod Guide. It is for the Glo, but the steps are the same for all the devices. That should most of your questions.

For the VM, I don't really know. I have no real issues with doing this on a Windows machine. The only real advantage of a Linux machine is that you can mount the partitions and read the data directly.

For the serial number, you can use a binary editor to replace it before writing the image. The serial number is at offset 0x200. Setting it isn't that important. As far as I can see, it is used for very few things and if you aren't syncing to the Kobo server, it won't matter at all.
