When you extract genotype data for certain samples in a VCF file, is the resultant file in GT.FORMAT still technically a VCF file in itself? or if you wanted these extracted genotypes in their own vcf, do you somehow have to convert this to .vcf?

While your question is unclear, if you select lines from your vcf and keep the header intact then yes, that's still a vcf. If you start to do more tampering than you are likely breaking the specfications.
