Please list all things can we do with a VPS? I think it is just for creating hosting packages and used for hosting websites on them. What are the other works a VPS can do?

Of course, it is pretty easy to resell hosting packages for websites with a VPS.
However, you can do lots of things with a VPS that does not include website hosting. You can run applications, programmes, cloud systems, so they would be reachable online. Configure VPS to be a VPN server or a nameserver. You can use VPS just to store your data online or store backups of your data. Also, you can configure VPS to be a game server and many more possibilities.

VPS likes a small PC and you can do more things with it, not only hosting your websites :)

Aside from websites hosting, you can just store personal files on your own cloud storage with OwnCloud. Having VPS makes it possible to link new domains to it without limiting their number. You can install any programs, modules, and scripts on your virtual private server. You can make a VPN with OpenVPN or a proxy server and use a secure channel for data transmission and bypass blocking of websites. Windows VPS can be used as a remote workstation. You can use VPS for the operation of a media server, for streaming video or for surveillance cameras video storage. It depends only on your purposes.

VPS can pretty much do anything your PC can do. The only limitations are how much resources get shared between other customers and their TOS.

It can be a mail server, a name server, cloud storage, etc. Depending on the amount of storage space you have on it and how much you need you could use it as a backup server as well.
