Does it matter which way (horizontal or vertical) we draw the VSEPR model as long as theh indicate the same arrangement & shape? For example the one on the left shows that the O bonds are being pushed down because of the lone pair but in the solution manual the structure is as on the right.

Does not matter. All ends up being the same VSEPR structure.
It just might be easier to identify if you do it horizontally.

To clarify further - no, there are no resonance structures when drawing VSEPR
