My comments are in line...

> A new portable computer was tested for compatibility by installing
manjaro into a virtual machine. The operating system started successfully,
including wireless internet access between the m$ host and manjaro guest
> Is this good enough to conclude that manjaro can replace m$ as the
operating system for the new computer?

In general, no. Since we do not know what you are going to use the machine
for, the only advice I can provide is to ensure you can perform all the
functions you need. Btw,  this is an awful question.

> The new computer does not have a cd/dvd drive, so perhaps the m$ system
must be removed by installing manjaro via a usb memory stick. Is this
simply achieved by copying the manjaro iso file to a (previously empty) usb
memory stick?

No.  You need something like unetbootin. https://unetbootin.github.io

> What would be the advice to create an iso image of the m$ originally
supplied with the computer, then remove it and possibly use as a virtual
image later in the future?

You seem to be using this list for somebody else to do your research. Try
google search. If you are genuinely new to computers, this task is beyond
your skill level. I'm not trying to dissuade you, but if you don't know if
it can be done, you have not bothered to Google it or have just started to
use computers. Either way,  virtualization maybe too complex for you.
