You need 5.5 for nested virtualisation (i.e lab ESXi-s running as virtual machines)
Also take care to max RAM in server

You will need a license for ALL versions of vCenter Server, but you can use it for 60 days in evaluation mode.

I would recommend you use AutoLab for your LAB, you can rebuild your lab very quickly every 60 days...
