How to Install Power BI setup in D365 Virtual Machine box.
You can install power BI desktop in your one box.
Take a loo at below thread as well if you want to enable power bi embedded experience in one box.
what is one box? Is this any third party app.
I mean to say your VM
It's installed in exactly the same way than it's installed to any workstation. Download the installer and run it. Assuming you talk about Power BI Desktop. The cloud version of Power BI can't be installed anywhere, it runs in the cloud.
ADDITIONALLY could check this

Pls help how to install the BI desktop
You can't install new software in the Microsoft managed dev box. You can only install new software in dev boxes that you host in your Azure subscription (Cloud hosted environments) or run locally (Downloadable VHD).
In this scenario how to develop power bi reports and integrate with d365.
There are many options.
What kind of report are you thinking about?
You need to know that you can't access D365 prod database with Power BI, so your report can't be based on SQL queries. Unless you use BYODB, export entities from your D365 to your own Azure SQL database, and report from that database.
If you want to connect directly to D365, you need to connect via OData. The OData endpoints are accessible from anywhere, so you don't need to install Power BI in your dev machine, instead install it on your own workstation. Or use the cloud version of Power BI. Then connect to yourD365EnvironmentURL/.../Customers to get customer data, and this same way you can access any public data entity.
OData is quite slow so you can't use it for heavy transactional reporting. In such scenarios you can use BYODB. Or export to Data Lake, which I believe is still in preview.
For more info, you can do web searches about the topics and technologies mentioned above.
Is it possible to Connect to SQL Database of Online Dynamics 365 FO through Power BI Desktop from my local PC ? Any configuration need to be done from SQL side in One box ?
Is it possible to connect to the online D365 FO SQL database from power Bi desktop installed in my PC ?
No. You can never connect to the D365FO cloud production system database from outside the system. In dev you can do it, and also in sandbox you can do it (you can open firewalls in the Azure database). But not in prod. So you can't build any solution / report that would rely on accessing the prod database directly.
