Licensing is a whole other beast. You need to contact MS or an authorized dealer for any licensing questions since none of the Experts are qualified to answer licensing questions on behalf of a the licenser.

Now from my experience you need to a Terminal Server USER\DEVICE CAL for any user or device that will connect to your TS server.

You need to purchase a VLK for Office to install on a TS server http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office-2003-resource-kit/office-2003-licensing-and-system-requirements-HA001140301.aspx

Dependent on what Windows Server edition you are installing will depend on what guide you would use for TS\RDS install
