-What steps should be taken at the end of the period? Copy the archive to tape and then consolidate so that the next period starts afresh?
-How many restore points are safe? Is it feasible to have a yearly archive (365 restore points) ?
-Should I “Enable guest file system indexing” for the job?

Some users successfully use 365-points chains, but note that restore from the far backup will take significant amount of time.
That`s up to you. Guest file indexing allows you to search for VM guest OS files inside VM backups and perform 1-click restore in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, but that is optional.
I'm not sure of the terminology, but at the end of the "period" (whether it be 90 days or 365 days), is it possible to roll all the changes into a single backup and just back that up to tape? This backup then provides the seed for the next backup series.
