I know it doesn't support compressed disk images (such as compressed VHD files), but does it at least support non-compressed VHD files? Like does it actually read the header on these (VHD files are a Microsoft-invented disk image format that contains I think either a header or footer with all the data needed to describe a physical drive), and get the drive geometry from this header? Or does it only support flat disk images, requiring the user to specify the disk geometry in the imgmount command?

The official version of DOSBox does not since the intent is to not use HD images unless a game does not work. If a game does not work the normal way then it needs to be reported here.
