Do react hooks make it easier to use the mvvm design pattern?
Not necessarily easier - hooks are mostly a way to provide functionality to function components (instead of class components), and then they let you re-order and organize how to handle things like effects. So it's not like they allow you to do anything new necessarily - but they just let you organize and respond to your data and effects in a new way.

Ignoring the bits about RXJS specifically, the "facade" approach of putting all your "view-model" logic into a custom hook and then pulling the VM hook into the components you need, is pretty great. Previously this would be done with the container/pure-component model and/or higher-order-components (HoCs), which have their own pitfalls and boilerplate to deal with.
So while hooks don't give you any groundbreaking new MVVM architecture out of the box, I do think they make it easier and cleaner to implement.
