How to apply Security Plus license to ASA 5510

I am new to ASA appliances and have following question:

I have two ASA 5510 units, from show version command both shows

Hardware: ASA5510-K8

This Platform has base license.

I want to use both of these units in Active/Standby failover, and to do that i guess i need Security Plus license (as failover is NOT supported on ASA 5510 base model)

Do I need to buy Two Security Plus License to install on Both appliances or just one ??

Second Whats the steps/Process to obtain and apply this security license.
