I am trying to install vimtex, and I am not how to do that. What plugin manager should I use?

How do I combine it with "vim-surround"? "snipmate"?

I went through the readme file, but could not really understand how vimtex could be used with other plugin managers. I could not install vim-plug

To install with vim-pathogen, this should work (taken directly from the readme, I just swapped vim-sensible with vimtex):

Now any plugins you wish to install can be extracted to a subdirectory under ~/.vim/bundle, and they will be added to the 'runtimepath'. Observe:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone https://github.com/lervag/vimtex.git

Now vimtex is installed. If you really want to get crazy, you could set it up as a submodule in whatever repository you keep your dot files in. I don't like to get crazy.

I further suggest you read the full readme of vim-pathogen, as well as other plugin managers that might be of interested, e.g.:

Regarding how to combine vimtex with other plugins: I don't understand the question. In principle, it should just work.
