What for are the parameters ROWS and COLS in sigle frame rendering ?

With it, we can split single frames into fragmens, that could be calculated on different machines. Number of fragments will be calculated as rows x columns (in default case 3x2 = 6 tiles). Tiles are assembled automatically.

How should I split my frame into tiles ?

There's no easy answer for that. It really depends on the scene's resolution, complication, rendering bucket size and 'uniformity' of scene. In most cases - with increasing resolution, more tiles will get the job faster - but tiles shouldn't drop below 400x300 pixels.

How can I get vray render elements saved ?

Please define exr as output format in your scene file, and set saving render elements into it.

My job is queued - what does it mean ?

It means that we're quite busy and your job waits in queue 'till some resources will become avalible. Queue works in FIFO mode, so the order of calculating jobs is determined by placing them into queue.
