Could to create VSS with WS-X6816-10GE throughout etherchannels or only with the Supervisor Engine? And if is possible with two options what would be the difference?

Not sure i understand. You have already included an attachment which shows that that the WS-X6816 can be used for the VSL so why are you asking if it can be used ?

In terms of which to use Cisco recommend using the onboard supervisor ports and then if you need further bandwidth you can use additional ports from your linecard. See this configuration guide for more details -

Hello,

Yes to both questions. Requirement for VSS is 10Gb capability which you have in the SUP and line-card, as stated, Cisco recommend using the 10Gb uplinks from the SUPs. I think this is a very common practice!

Hope this helps.
