I need to expand a partition inside a Debian VM on a Windows host (and in the process move a small partition).
I think I should use a Live CD (Which one?)
Can I mount an ISO to the VM?

how to exactly resize depends on the filesystem, the quick and easy solution would be a live cd like the gparted live cd , you can just mount the ISO in the VM and boot from it.
Did you mean Live CD? Just out of curiosity... I can't give you exact instructions because I haven't done it for Linux in a long time, but I have done it recently for a Windows VM so I think the process should be almost the same. You need to create a new disk for your Debian VM and add it to the disk inventory in VMware. Then fire up your Debian OS and check out this link. I that should be able to do what you need. Hopefully this helps
