Hello i am in a pickle here.
win2012 does not want to promote to DC.
I tried to promote 2012 but it did not work.
I looked for migration tools for 2012 but its not o the software.  sbs2011 has their own but i believe that is for sbs 2007 to sbs 2011.
Anyone knows how i can get the migration tool from 2012

Standard edition servers don't have migration "tools" as such. You simply migrate the various roles you want to move. If you are trying to migrate the ADDS role (and I hope you've decommissioned exchange already, as ADDS should be last) then promoting the 2012 server to a DC is an appropriate step.

You say that did not work, but gave no details, so we have nothing to go on in assisting you.

The sbs2011 had all applications moved out to a new nas and been converted to vms.
all shared folder and files have been moved to the nas.
i performed all tests on sbs2011 and they passed after cleaning some parts.
made my full backup and system state.
installed win2012 as vm on nas.
ranned updates and vmtools.
upgraded the schema in sbs2011
ran adrep /forestprep
ran adrep /domainprep
win I promote 2012 as the new DC and then make it the global catalog, how to I correctly promote it as DC and DNS server?
this is where I messed up and fired up a new VM.
please let me kow the correct options for promoting.

I would like to keep the same domain name if possible so i believe will be easier to reattach the computers and printers and other hardware.  does that make a difference?  we have an app the is domain specific, i would believe it will be easier for it to keep reading the network pcs with the original domain name and ip address.
can i chnage back the ip address of xxx.xxx.123 to xxx.xxx.10?
or does that not matter?
i probaly will have to get into my firewalls and barracudas.
