MS SQL 2012 - Adding licenses

We've been running the evaluation version of MS SQL 2012 R2 for a couple of months, and are now ready to install or activate the live version.  We've purchased the licenses through our vendor, but we're not sure of the steps involved in moving from evaluation --> full version.  Is this just an upgrade?  Is it performed through a menu already installed with the evaluation version?  

More importantly, how do we install the licenses that we've purchased?  Also, curious what happens when you exceed the number of licenses?

What about adding the licenses - I have a SQL License, and 20 CAL licenses including 5 remote CAL licenses?   I'm guessing the product key will be the primary SQL License, but the additional CALs need to be added too?  Is that correct?
This will walk you throught step by step.
