W2019 vs Hyper-V Server 2019 for VM hosting (plus bonus W2019 licensing question)

So I’m getting contradictory answers regarding installing Windows Server 2019 Standard on bare metal and installing VMs, so I’m also investigating the possibility of using Hyper-V Server 2019 on bare metal and deploying VMs on that.

It’s to my understanding that Hyper-V Server is basically Windows Core with Hyper-V functionality, but I’ve also heard there are ways of adding GUI components onto it? Does that include the Hyper-V management module? Anyone have any idea of the general pros
and cons that come from running Hyper-V 2019 instead of Windows 2019 with Hyper-V?

Otherwise, how much of a licensing apocalypse would occur if we had a single license of Windows Server 2019 standard and it was running on both bare metal (strictly in a Hyper-V capacity) and two VMs each running Windows Server 2019? Would I use the provided
license key on the server and AVMAs on the VMs? The provided license key on all three systems? Any help would be appreciated on any of these subjects.
