SQL licensing in VMware

Working with a mixed environment at present 5.5 and 6.5

we have 65 SQL machines and im looking to see the best plan of action for put these 65 machines on two ESXi hosts.

i know SQL is per core these days rather than socket there are SQL 2003, 2005 2008 and 2012 machines what is the best way to plan this ?

i am looking at the best plan if possible on a step by step basis

Thanks I have a lot of those sheets looking for real world advice if possible

There is a lot to look through sheets wise

Is there a plan to look at?

Going through cpu\memory for each vm and with esxtop and looking at vSphere Cluster Sizing Calculator | CloudXC

Steps going forward would be appreciated
