VMWare have a KB article to help -

To edit a .vmx file:

  1. Ensure the virtual machine is shut down (not suspended).
  2. From Fusion's menu bar, click Window > Virtual Machine Library.
  3. In the left column, Ctrl+click the virtual machine and click Show in Finder.
  4. Ctrl+click the revealed package (ending in .vmwarevm) and click Show Package Contents.
  5. Ctrl+click the file ending in .vmx and choose Open With > Other.
  6. Navigate to TextEdit and click Choose.
  7. You can now add or edit lines lines as needed. Lines are displayed in no particular order.
  8. When finished, save changes, and exit.
