Re the Vim install, it is suggesting the following packages:

ctags
vim-doc
vim-scripts

Should I?

X11 requires a ton of memory to operate correctly and I wouldn't add it if I was you. 

Like I said, I wouldn't recommend it either for mostly the same reasons.  Just fun to think about the possibilities.

I cannot understand why you would EVER use two of ANY options. Do you?

the v option if for/to verbosely list files processed (whatever that means).

This is not uncommon.  The v option gives you verbose output.  Additional v's make it ever more verbose.  Can't think off the top of my head, but I know I've seen at least one command that supports up to 4 v's for extremely verbose output.  Usually, the more verbose the output, the more you have to know about the lower workings of the command to get any use out of the information.

Seems that if the option uses more than a single letter, it uses a double-dash .. yes? Is this the rule/syntax?

This is very true in the general case, but not a hard set rule.  Like the pirate's code, it is a sort-of guideline.

Re the Vim install, it is suggesting the following packages:

vim-doc might not be bad to have, but you really don't need any of them.  The packages that apt-get suggests after an install usually provide auxiliary functionality or documentation.  You don't need them to use vim effectively.

Here is 13 of them:
http://guides.radified.com/magoo/guides/linux/linux_partition_explanation.html

Some of the one's that I have on my system not mentioned in the guide are:
lib/lib32/lib64 - hold library files (sorta like a DLL)
lost+found - kinda just what it says - files that the system thinks aren't where they belong
media - has mount points for removable media like CD's and USB disks
opt - sometimes used for optional software
selinux - used by selinux
