The vinyl acts as a moister barrier, so go ahead and keep the vinyl down. as long as it is level you are fine. You shouldn't have more than a 1/4 inch dip over a 10' space.

You can lay right on top of the vinyl. Just make sure there are no uneven areas in the subfloor before you start.

If it is only one layer of tile you can work right over it as long as the floor is leveled.
