If so, does it depend on the missing VSS support (in powered off VMs)? Is there any way to speed up the backup and the replica of powered off VM?
VM power state doesn't matter for the backup/replication job performance, furthermore since "application aware image processing"cannot be used for the powered off VM, the job should complete a little bit faster, but virtual disk data processing/moving performance should be the same in both cases.

It should be the same as for powered on VM state given that CBT is enabled for this VM.
