Cisco ASA 5505 - 2 questions - VPN Licensing; Routing


I have a client that has a Cisco ASA 5505 security appliance.  Currently it is setup as a "proof of concept" for clientless browser-based SSL VPN.  The device came with 2 licenses for this service, and we need to increase that somewhere between 10-25 users.  25 users is the max on this device I believe.

I have searched and tried Googling the ASA 5505 for licensing but I can't find the correct license that I need for this.

The second question I have is routing capability.  We have a WAN connection to another branch of the computer from this location where the ASA 5505 is located.  A Cisco 2851 is used for this connection.  We are wanting to bring in a high speed Internet connection for the VPN access and Internet access.  What I need to know is can we put the WAN and Internet connections behind the ASA 5505 and have that route appropriately to the branch WAN for that traffic and all other traffic to the Internet?
