I am a website developer so I can accomplish my goal by using html/css and php. I am completely new, however to SharePoint. What I need to know is will it do what I want it to do? and What is the cheapest way to run it?

Small business 10-20 employees. They need a program to input customer information into a database. Name, address, phone, etc. I create the custom forms for them. They need the ability to run reports. This is Intranet only. They are running Windows Server 2012 R2.

It should have the features you want.  Sharepoint will give you the ability to create lists with whatever columns you want.  The administrator (you) will have to create the lists and any depend ant lookups ( eg state, income range,…). The default form should work for most cases.   You can use info path or share point designer if you need to customize the forms.   Each list can have public and personal views of the data that can be used for reports.  The view can be exported to office applications (word, excel…) for printing.  

You should be able to install sharepoint foundation on the windows server 2012 r2
