As I understand it:

You will need to license for 2016-level software, though you can install 2008 instead if you prefer.  You can then also upgrade your way up to a higher level if you wished.

If you license by physical core, then everything component allowed with your version/level of SQL Server can be installed on that server.  For example, if you do Enterprise per-core, then SSRS could be installed on the same server with no additional charge.

But each separate machine, physical or virtual, is definitely needs its own license.  Bottom line, cost-wise: get lots of RAM and use named instances to put a lot of stuff on the same box.

[If you have Software Assurance, and a high enough license,  you can have one "recovery"/stand-by box at the same level for no additional licensing cost.]

I'm not sure if Standard Edition includes SSRS as a component or not.

SSRS was originally delivered as a free downloadable add-on for SQL Server 2000. A version of SSRS has been included as part of the core Standard Edition components with every version of SQL Server from 2005 on (no extra cost), with significant enhancements in the 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, and 2016 versions.

Scale-out report servers are an Enterprise-only (extra cost) feature; there may be a few others like that but I can't think of any at the moment..

Yes it does. During the SQL Server setup you can choose to install SSRS in the Features selection page.

If not, what version did it first ship with?
If I'm not wrong it was shipping with SQL Server 2000 SP4.

is it free with SQL server, or it is extra cost and install?
Not free. It uses a SQL Server license (as SSAS and SSIS) but if you install it in a server that already has SQL Server engine running you don't need an extra license.
