Yes, SRM requires an additional license. You can probably do anything with your license if you write your own automation application.

While its technical possible to get replicate vcenter and recover the same one, I'd get a second vcenter before getting srm.

vCHA is not designed to provide site-level availability of vCenter. That's why you have multiple vCenters at different sites managing different sets of resources.

You're using vCHA as it was not intended although it may "work". Separate subnet does not mean separate physical sites. If you have an active site and a failover site, this is a use case for two separate vCenters and not the same vCenter. Almost all other layered solutions begin from that premise.
