Help needed with part numbers for MS Windows Server and MS SQL Server

We are in the process of upgrading to a new server, which hosts Kaseya software for all our remotely supported customers.  Our old server runs Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition, plus SQL Server 2005.  In neither case did we have to buy CALs, although at this point I don't know if CALs were even used back then.

As we upgrade the hardware, we also want to upgrade to a newer version of Kaseya.  The system requirements they give us are brief, leaving me unclear on what exactly to order:

1) >>Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition 64 bit.  They say nothing about CALs.  Is there a most basic version we can buy, and then add CALs if needed?  What is the MS part number for this?  When I get online and try to look, I am faced with dozens--if not hundreds--of confusing part numbers.

2) >>Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition 64 bit.  Same problem...they say nothing about CALs.  Is there a most basic version we can buy, and then add CALs if needed?  What is the MS part number for this?  When I get online and try to look, I am faced with dozens--if not hundreds--of confusing part numbers.

3) >>Microsoft SQL Reporting Services.  Is this a separate product, or a function built into SQL Server, or what?  If this is something I need to buy, what is the MS part number?

TIA
