A hypervisor switch is a vSwitch which exists logically within the hypervisor software. It will segment different VLANs within the single hypervisor. Virtual firewalls are just firewalls hosted on a VM. You'd still want configure something locally on the hypervisor to segment the virtual networks on there.
