I have one PHYSICAL Windows 2012R2
server with two physical processors with
two VMs and plan to purchase Microsoft
System Center 2012 R2 Standard for $1,323
-----------------------------------------------
Questions

 1. above works with unlimited
    CORES per processor ?

 2. I only need the $1,323 license,
    no Client Management Licenses (MLs)
    needed since I only want to monitor
    two VMs, no other end-points ?

 3. I could get a few Endpoint Protection
    Subscriptions for $22 each to replace
    my existing Symantec Endpoint Protection
    CLIENT licenses ?

 4. The above $22 covers two years of updates,
    after that I could renew for $22 to get
    two more years of updates ?

First, licensing advice here is not legally binding. And I *often* see bad advice, which is a great way to get sued. So my single biggest answer here is "Call Microsoft pre-sales."  Be safe, not sorry.

Given the information you provided, that all looks generally correct. Although I usually see SCEP licensed in one year or three year increments, not two year. That may vary by region however.
