Is hyper-v free with the purchase of windows server OS? Are you limited to a certain amount of VMs per windows server version?

Hyper-V doesn't cost extra. There are no limits to the number of VMs you can run, however, you will need licenses for any Windows VMs (included number varies depending on Windows Server edition).

Where would you recommend buying the licenses? I’ve seen some on EBay.
If they're for a home lab, there are plenty of websites who sold them.
If they're for a production environment, I wouldn't dare to buy one outside the "legit" channel.
