I am looking for the best solution to limit bandwidth on a VE of fastIron superx. if I understand correctly first I should create a traffic policy then modify an extended ACL entry that references the traffic policy and finally bind the ACL to an interface. Is it possible to use VE interface?

Short answer is yes you can apply a rate limiting policy on a VE.
See below from the Config Guide for Fastiron 7.3.00 (Page 812 of the manual or page 870 of the PDF)
You can configure ACL-based rate limiting on the following interface types:
• Physical Ethernet interfaces
• Virtual interfaces
• Trunk ports
• Specific VLAN members on a port (refer to “Applying an IPv4 ACL to specific VLAN members on a port (Layer 2 devices only)” on page 746)
• A subset of ports on a virtual interface (refer to “Applying an IPv4 ACL to a subset of ports on a virtual interface (Layer 3 devices only)” on page 746)
Suggest you look at chapter 21 called Configuring Traffic Policies for more infomration.
