I'm looking for a remote desktop services, that can run on two locations on two different workstations between two locations.  The catch is I need the remote location to be able to use a local webcam, scanner, printer, signature pad, and credit card reader on the remote connection and trick a database into thinking they're local devices on the other computer. Is there such a service or program out there that can accommodate that?

Even on regular Remote desktop-Microsoft build in, you have option "Local resources"..."Bring to this computer", you can use make remote HD looks like "local", if you require indeterminate access.
Probably would be easy enough establish VPN tunnel(Microsoft build-in) to each location.
This way all drives/folder you will choose for, will be "local".
Or depends on you edge router, you can add machine to "hardware based VPN", and will give same effect with the differences that your tunnel will not really on OS software base, and will be more reliable.

Just some links for example:
