I would to know if this process is normal or not?

I thought like I backup my Job1, I ll have all restore point, 7 in this case.
Yes, in order to restore a singe VM or file from backup you need to restore the entire backup file from tape to disk and then use regular Veeam B&R file level restore.
Please note that with reversed incremental mode only full backup files are copied to tape during backup-to-tape job runs. Reversed increments (.vrb files) are skipped form processing. If you’re willing to copy .vrb files to tape, then you can use file to tape job.
In my Backup to tape job I ticked the option "Process incremental backup files" but i did'nt see really a difference. If you could clarify to me this option.

You're talking here about backup to tape job, right? If so, this option is related solely to forward incremental job, not reversed incremental one. With this option, the backup to tape job will process both .vbk (full restore points) and .vib (incremental) files.
Correct. Though there is a probability that we'll add an ability to restore directly from tape in future versions.
