    Yes, or at least you will get errors. You may be able to suppress them or you may actually break stuff, especially addons. vBulletin 4.2.5 is only "certified" compatible with PHP 5.6.x and up to PHP 7.1.x.

    The good news is that WordPress doesn't require PHP 7.2. It will run just fine on PHP 7.1.x or even PHP 5.6.x.

        No. What they say is:
        To run WordPress we recommend your host supports:

        • PHP version 7.2 or greater.
        • MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.
        • HTTPS support
        But just below that, they also say:

        Note: If you are in a legacy environment where you only have older PHP or MySQL versions, WordPress also works with PHP 5.2.4+ and MySQL 5.0+, but these versions have reached official End Of Life and as such may expose your site to security vulnerabilities.
        The reality is that I run several WordPress sites on my server using PHP 7.1.x and I also maintain WordPress sites for other people on servers using PHP5.6.x. There are no issues with those PHP versions.

          Recommended version is not the same as minimum version.

              Any plans to change this? "Please note that vBulletin 4.2.5 is not compatible with PHP 7.2.0 or higher."

                No. vBulletin has made it very clear that version 4.2.5 is end of life for the vB 4 series. Moreover the conversions of vB 3.8.x and 4.2.5 to run on PHP 7.2.1 were made by Paul Marsden who is no longer with vBulletin / Internet Brands, and all other coders still employed here are assigned to the vB 5 series.
