Please I wish to transfer files and folders from Windows (host) to Linux (virtual machine) using WinSCP. Any ideas?

It's as simple as running SSHD on the Linux VM and using WinSCP to connect to it over an IP network. Nothing special. Just make sure you have a properly functioning virtual network.
A better option to transfer files to a guest would be to use VirtualBox Shared Folders.
