    I just picked up a copy of these rules and I'd like to pursue a first game. Can anyone recommend a good starting title and where to purchase? Is this something I should set up on Vassal first? Likely I'll be playing solo for my learning game.

I'd recommend the battle of Chaeronea in The Great Battles of Alexander: Deluxe Edition. Only a few types of units and perfect for a solo play. I always teach SGBoH with this scenario.

    I downloaded the modules on Vassal but haven't figured out if they'll let the Simple rules play out on them. Some modules enforce, others don't. If anyone has any insight on that I'd love to hear it.

In most cases you'll just have to make minor changes (ie placing leaders accordingly with simple set-up). I don't think you'll find modules with simple scenarios set-up.
