The vault items are like in-game achievements: once you you complete the "challenge", you unlock a piece of concept art, promotional art, etc. Most of the challenges are quite self-explanatory (play as a certain character on a specific stage, get a score of XXX,XXX, beat stage three in under a certain time, etc), and they are split between games - there are 51 challenges for Final Fight and 18 for Magic Sword.

The challenges for Final Fight are all incredibly obvious, no need to cover them. I will say that one of the challenges requires playing all stages in co-op, and most of the other challenges are much easier with a buddy helping you out - the two of you will clear the enemies much faster than just one of you for the time challenges, and one of you can cover the other while he goes for the score / "beat using less than X lives / continues" things.

The ones for Magic Sword are also mostly obvious, except for the secret area challenges. There are eight secret areas in the game, and you need to find them all:

-----------
Floor 7 - When you enter the floor, walk left and hit the column. warp to level 11.

Floor 14 - After the first swinging ball on a chain, jump up one step and crouch and slash the top step. The door will appear on the other side of the steps. Warps to level 19.

Floor 17 - Slash the left side of the last arch. Warps to floor 20.

Floor 21 - Between the imprisoned (knight) and the exit, jump left from the elevated ground while slashing. Warp to floor 24.

Floor 28 - Crouch on the platform above the first pool of acid and slash the space in the middle. Enters RED floors 29 to 32.

Floor 34 - Jump and slash the left side of the the fourth pair of hanging pillars. Warps to floor 36.

Floor 39 - Slash the ledge immediately to the left of the first door after the pit of fire. Warps to floor 42.

Floor 40 - Crouch and slash the space above the ledge before the first pit of spikes. Enters RED floors 41 to 46.
-----------

Credit for the locations goes to exotica.org and the x360a.org forum.

Note that for the co-op challenge, you need to do all of the secret stages. Obvious, I know, but doing them skips certain other stages and you'll need to go back and finish those skipped stages as well. Also, if you have to continue during one of the secret stages, you may not get credit for finishing it - if so, just replay it and finish it without dying, which usually isn't hard unless you try to rush it.

--Edit--
xhunterrrr left a comment and said that you don't have to do the secret stages to unlock the co-op challenge. Me and my boosting buddy had to do them to unlock the challenge, so try playing through normally and not doing them, and if you don't unlock the challenge, go back and do them.
--/Edit--

The only other challenge that may give you a problem for Magic Sword is "get 500,000 points on level 30", and that's only if you don't know the trick. There's a wizard flying around that spawns rocks to throw at you after you hit him, and what you want do is use your magic attack (X+A) when all of the rocks are flying towards you. This will drop a ton of coins, so just rinse and repeat until you hit 500k.

TIPS FOR UNLOCKING VAULT ACHIEVEMENTS:
FINAL FIGHT:
Points based: If you need to run through a level for points, I recommend using any character you want, but playing a 1 player game. Just make sure you pick everything up, and you should get a high enough score. To be extra sure, you can play the game on hard difficulty (custom game > select hard), as you get more points in hard mode. (thanks Aphrodite1 for that tip!)

Time based: If you're going for time-based achievements, it's best to pick the faster characters. You might want to play with another competent player, if so play as Guy and Cody. Avoid Haggar, as he is pretty slow moving. If doing it by yourself, pick Guy purely for his speed.

MAGIC SWORD:
Secret levels: Secret levels are opened by finding hidden doors:
On Floor 28, crouch on the platform above the first pool of acid and slash the space in the middle. This enters alternate versions of levels 29 to 32, which are secret levels 1 - 4.
On Floor 40, crouch and slash the space above the ledge before the first pit of spikes. This enters alternate versions of levels 41 to 45, which are secret levels 5 - 10.

Find the secret warp sets: This basically seems to be a case of finding every secret 'warp' door (ones that jump you up a few levels) in the game. Here are all their locations:
Floor 7 - When you enter the floor, walk left and hit the column. warp to level 11.
Floor 14 - After the first swinging ball on a chain, jump up one step and crouch and slash the top step. The door will appear on the other side of the steps. Warps to level 19.
Floor 17 - Slash the left side of the last arch. Warps to floor 20.
Floor 21 - Between the imprisoned knight and the exit, jump left from the elevated ground while slashing. Warp to floor 24.
Floor 28 - Crouch on the platform above the first pool of acid and slash the space in the middle. Enters secret levels (1 -5).
Floor 34 - Jump and slash the left side of the the fourth pair of hanging pillars. Warps to floor 36.
Floor 39 - Slash the ledge immediately to the left of the first door after the pit of fire. Warps to floor 42.
Floor 40 - Crouch and slash the space above the ledge before the first pit of spikes. Enters secret levels (6 - 10).


Score 500,000 points on level 30: There is a trick to this, as the level is extremely short. You have to do this without dying so it's best to do this on easy difficulty (custom game > easy). Once you have completed the game once you get a level select when you start another game - luckily you can go straight to level 30, so do this! On level 30, there is a wizard floating around. When he swoops down, hit him with your sword once. He will go up into the air and start to levitate rocks. Once they are all in the air and lined up, press both buttons together ( and ) to perform a magic attack. This will transform each rock into a coin worth 8000 points. After a few seconds a new wizard will appear. Rinse and repeat until 500,000 points have been collected.

Complete any level in under 10 seconds: Do this on level 5 or 13. Simply grab the invincibility chalice in the first chest to your right, and run to the right. Your invincibility will allow you to simply run through enemies, and you should reach the other side of the screen in under 10 seconds easily.
