Good day, could someone advise on a few questions.

1) Is VR already bundled with AppGameKit Studio?
2) Can Microosft Mixed Reality Headsets used for game dev in AppGameKit VR?

This is the headset I'm looking at.

It's affordable, comes with controllers. I just need something entry level that I can develop for:

My main concern is develioping a game on A Microsoft "mixed reality" headset and the game ending up not compatible with other headsets like HTC or Oculus. Is that a thing devs have to consider?

I had a Dell VR headset and it worked fine with the VR add on. As they use Steam libraries I think you'd be fine with any of them.

You need the add on though, there is no VR support in the base AGK.

Is there an addon already for AppGameKit Studio or is the current one compatible?

APK Studio is currently using the AppGameKit Classic engine so the old plugins should work

In the future AppGameKit studio will have the choice of using the old classic engine or the
new vulkan engine. Plugins in the future may need some modification to suit the
vulkan side of things:
