I just booted vassal up for the first time and it is a little daunting as to what exactly you can do with it. Is it possible to actually play this game solo with vassal?

You could, if you raped the retire button. Each house warroom is locked for the player controlling it, as are each house's units, cards and tokens. So if you wanted to play solo, you'd have to constantly click Retire, and then choose the House you wanna be able to move. As far as I know, there's no way to be controlling all pieces in this module as the same Player.

Playing solo would also mean you're not sure of when things are or aren't showing up for other players (looking at the wildling deck, placing orders, drawing tides of battle...)

Best way to get a hang of it is to try it with someone else, and see what you can do and how to do it.

Vassal has an option to play online and you would be far better served playing AGoT that way. Note, Vassal is only a virtual representation of the board game. It has no IA. Playing AGoT solo on Vassal would be no different than if you setup the actual board game and tried playing it by yourself.

There are games that are designed to allow for solo play such as:
Arkham Horror
Silent War
Ardennes '44
etc.
