For deciding whether to host this on-site, or off-site, I would say that depends on your organization's level of experience supporting an Oracle database, plus a server O/S to run the database and the application, plus a SAN or NAS to store the files needed by this installation.  If you have in-house staff with experience managing servers, storage, databases, and complex applications, it may make sense to host this on-site.  However, if you don't have sufficient staff with experience in these areas, it may be cheaper and simpler to pay Oracle to host this off-site for you.  Hosting this offsite should also make patching this system much simpler (assuming that the host organization will do this for you).  If you host this in-house, you may spend a lot of time and energy applying application patches.

For deciding whether to license this by core or by user, that will likely depend on the number of users your organization has that will use this software.  If you have hundreds of users or more, it may be cheapest to license by core.  If you have only 10-20 or so users, it is likely cheaper to license this application by user.  If you choose to license by core, make sure that you understand exactly what that means.  Is that per core in the database server(s) or in the application server(s) or both?  Then, what about if you have (or add later) a test system (or two or more)?  Or, what about a disaster-recovery system?  Do those cores all get counted for licensing?
