SQL Server is RDBMS and not a Reporting application. You'll need a report application such Reporting Services or Crystal Report. You may even use Excel or develop a small application to build the report you need based in the database data.

Well, you need to use SSRS to create reports. Each report need to be configured to connect to a database and then you'll need to design the pretended layout based in the information that you want to show.
