First off, SCOM isn't the type of server application that should be installed on a multi-purpose server.  Its kind of a hog.  I recommend deploying it on a dedicated server.

In general the installation is straight forward, the latest SCOM 2012 R2 runs on Server 2012 or 2012 R2.  Typically SCOM 2012 comes with an integrated install license for SQL 2012.

Here is a great step-by-step article for deploying SCOM on a single management server:
