Basically, we have a Terminal Server at a second location (over hardware VPN) on the same domain. Once all the roles have been installed, what should I do next?

Multiple session host servers can use a single license server, so there's no need to add another one. As long as you've got good connectivity between the new session host server and the existing license server, you can simply install your CALs on the existing one.

Technically, one Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server/Remote Desktop licensing server will suffice, but many organizations choose to allocate a second licensing server with licenses installed for redundancy.  It just depends on your environment.  

If you decide to install the second licensing server, you can designate which licensing server is to be used by each location based on GPOs.
