It's exactly the same procedure, only the key entered dictates which license you get.

See my EE Article, Step by Step Tutorial Instructions with Screenshots

The ESXi hypervisor has just one binary. The licenses enable/disable certain features. The installation is just one single method.

If you are signing up an evaluation for ESXi 5.5, you can refer to my blog post for installation basics
http://vpirate.in/2013/11/02/vsphere-5-5-basics-installing-esxi-5-5/

I would also suggest you to take a look at Free hypervisor if you are planning to use the hypervisor for more than 60 days as evaluation last only for 60days.
