Terminal services

I have installed Terminal services on server 2012
The services and Remote Desktop Services connections are working fine

The question I have is:
How can I set things up so that when I use a Remote Desktop Client to access the Terminal server AND the server 2012 behind this
ie The terminal server on port 3389 and the server 2012 on 3390

Are you asking about accessing your Terminal Server and 2012 Server externally through these ports? If so then you need to set up port forwarding on your router.

Say in your scenario your Terminal Server is 192.168.0.10 and your 2012 Server is 192.168.0.20. On your firewall device you will need to set up two port forwarding rules, a direct forward for 3389 to your Terminal Server (192.168.0.10) and then another to forward 3390 externally to 3389 internally pointing to your 2012 Server (192.168.0.20).

What I am asking is if I set up a server 2012 as a terminal; server, can I still access the server 2012 behind the terminal server  in a separate Remote Desktop session or is that server just a terminal server

Terminal Server (now known as Remote Desktop Services) is just a server role. You can still log into the server to do other tasks if needed. I wouldn't recommend installing other any roles though (e.g. DHCP, DNS, etc.) once you've got it set up for RDS.

Thats the point:
I can log on to the terminal server using a remote desktop services client, which is using port 3389
How do I log onto the backend server part (server 2012) with the same client

You can still access the "backend server part" when you log in using port 3389. A "Terminal Server" is just a regular Windows Server running the Terminal Services role. This role is what allows multiple users to log in and run applications off it.

What is it that you're trying to achieve exactly here that's causing you to ask this question?

If I access using the RDS client I will get on to a particular profile using the TS
I want to be able to get into the server using RDS client as an administrator of the backend server to allow me to carry out admin functions

So this happens when you currently log in with an Administrator account? If so, you need to look at what is applying these restrictions (be it Group Policy or some other method) and prevent them from applying to your admin account. Steps to do this for Group Policy can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816100

Sorry - I think I am confusing the issue by not knowing what I am asking for
Does the server 2012 have the same IP address and computer name as the Terminal Server once the TS role has been established on the server 2012

Yes it does.
