... Vocal drums?

Nah, EZ Drummer is used through midi files/notes/etc. If you've got guitar pro, you can write the drums in that then export the drums from GP to your DAW (reaper or whatever you use) then use the EZ Drummer VSTi on the midi drum track.

If you can get your hands on EZ Drummer and Guitar Pro (5 works very, very well) you are pretty much set to write drums.
