Lookup the manufacturer and specifications of the NIC. See if they mention 802.1q compatibility in hardware drivers. If that isn't possible, here is a complete article on turning on and testing 802.1q (VLAN tagging) in Ubuntu

The questions you are asking would require pages of information to answer. This is the stuff books are made of. This is a Q&A site. This is not a site for people to donate their time to do free network engineering for you. I humbly point out there is a huge difference. – Everett Aug 19 '12 at 3:55
