With VMware vSphere 5.5 Update 2 out, you can now edit a virtual machine in the vsphere client that has a hardware level of 10. Previously you could only do this in the vsphere web client.

VMware Change Virtual Machine Hardware Level PowerCLI

VMware Virtual Machine Hardware Level with PowerCLI

With vSphere 5.5 there is the option to update the virtual machine hardware to version 10. Unfortunately there is no way via the gui to update only to version 9. Why would you want to do this ? Because after upgrading the virtual machine to version 10 you can not longer edit the settings of the virtual machine in the vSphere Client, you can only edit the settings via the web client.
