I need to configure StackWise Virtual b/w my switches (Cat9500s) but the command just doesn't appear and I dont know why. They are just out of box switches, turned on a few hours earlier.

Only stack* commands I have:

Switch(config)#stack?
stack-mac  stackmaker  stacks  

some useful output:

Switch Ports Model              SW Version        SW Image              Mode   
------ ----- -----              ----------        ----------            ----

On Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.6.x, Cisco StackWise Virtual is only supported on C9500-24Q switch models.

Also on the Cisco C9500-24Q all the switches in the Cisco StackWise Virtual solution should be running the same license level.
