What is the implication of this equation; X' = X - VT is it a transform?

It is a transform. It is giving the position x' in a different frame of reference. You are calculating the position in the dashed frame of reference ( x') given that you know the position in the OTHER frame ( x) and that the velocity relative to that frame is V

Yes, the Galilean transformation.
