If you use the Pro version from MSFT technet (as in not a retail copy), you can use for 180 days with no activation.  If you wish to go beyond that, you will need to buy a license.  Here is some information on KMS clients:

siory to say you can't test KMS features there is no test key that you can use in a lab environment .. As you know KMS is an activation technolocy and Microsoft keeps the keys to the kingdom well proctected.

I believe my answer fulfilled the user's request for information as to installation for KMS in a lab environment, including a link to a technet article related to same.
