We are going to load office 2010 OEM on our terminal server.

My question is, how many licenses do we need? As many as the number of users in the office? As many as will have access to it at one time? 1 License? I am a little unclear of how that process works.

You need ZERO licenses for Office 2010 OEM because Office 2010 OEM cannot be installed on a Terminal Server - it is not licensed to be installed on a Terminal Server.  Only Volume Licenses are valid for Terminal Servers - any other version of Office would be violating licensing.

(And likely won't install / will break once the Terminal Services/REmote Desktop Services role is added).

Looked into both of those and still couldn't find if I need licenses for concurrent use or licenses for EVERY user that will connect to the software at some time.

In general, Microsoft doesn't license by concurrent user.

I strongly recommend you contact Microsoft about this - keep in mind the disclaimer below:

DISCLAIMER: Licensing advice offered here is a "best effort" and based on the understanding of the respondents. Licenses can change and we may not be aware of these changes or may misunderstand them. Further, licenses can differ by country and/or region and what we understand to be true in our region could be false in your region. "they told me on Experts-Exchange" will not be a valid defense in a software audit.  All licensing questions should be confirmed with the appropriate licensing authority (the maker of the software/issuer of the license).

First, please read leew's DISCLAIMER carefully as it does apply to any advice received here.

Second, under our enterprise agreement with Microsoft we are required to have a license count equal to or greater than the number of users that have access to the program so that would indicate that it is NOT concurrent. Again, leew stated this as well.
