Have two specific needs that may be related.

1.  I use an HP scanner and related software on my PC.   I need to be able to log into a virtual machine at work and use the scanner the same as I do locally.  I want to be able to scan and save documents to my network at work from home.  
Also need to apply the same routing in reverse on that the home PC is physical rather than virtual.
The home PC is running windows 10 enterprise.  The virtual machine at work is also windowes 10 Enterprise with the host OS being 2012R2.

So I read that remoteFX should be able to do what I need.  I have no IT background other than the necessity of getting by.
Need some clear direction of what needs to be on the local machine initiating the RDS session and what needs to be on the remote machine being accessed.

2, After accomplishing #1,
Want to be able to create a virtual machine or physical to install windows 10 and have it serve as a remote for multiple local clients.
Specifically, I want to be able to install office 2016 configured with the mail client, Quickbooks, Acrobat and a handful of other applications on one machine.  
Then via RDS, VDI, what ever in needed configure it so say 10 client running a mix of Windows 7, 8 and 10 can access and use the remote machine simultaneously.  
Naturally, will need to have the necessary licenses.  All the clients except for me will be accessing this machine via the local network.

Probably not explaining sufficiently, please let me know what additional detail is needed.
