Question about assets

Now I’ve got one concrete question about assets: what about virtual machines and docker images, are all VM’s and DI’s  each just one asset or every single item?

If all VMs have the same related risks, then you can use a single asset to represent them. In case there are VMs with specific risks you can use different VM types (e.g., operational VMs, development VMs, etc.). The same concept applies to DIs.
