Yes. TypeScript outputs JavaScript.
Is it possible to use the JS directly in VCLJS? -> I dont know

I dont use TypeScript today and dont have plans to use it, but is gaining
traction in the JS landscape. The next version of Angular (the most popular
JS framework) will be written in TypeScript.

Regarding IDE support WebStorm has native support. Other editors like
Sublime or Atom have plugins for it.

TypeScript is a superset of ECMAScript2015, which as TypeScript also needs
a transpiler like Babel

BTW: not impressed by VCL.JS
