you will always need Windows Server User CAL and a Remote Desktop Services User CAL for Xenapp which is running on server.

Office license is per Endpoint, so you will need Office license per connecting User.

You need to have RDS CAL to use XenApp, there no specific published apps or published desktop type license..
