My Question are follows:

1. which is better version to install Essentials-Standard-Data Center
2. we have only like users in my company i need to run some file servers and AD services and other stuff that i need like DNS and Remote Desktop etc.
3. is it advisable to install? or do you recommend other version?
4. which one is easy to configure since it was my first time to install it. (after a month i will install this since they will deliver the server by second week of September for upgrading out system.)

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

The question isn't which edition is better but which one best fits your needs. All I can suggest is to look at the features of each edition and consider which best meets your specific situation. Note that there will be a substantial price difference. Generally you would pick the cheapest edition that meets your present needs both now and in the foreseeable future.

Installation and configuration procedures will be virtually identical with all editions.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I would start by looking at the official reference documentation to make an informed choice:

The only suggestion I can give is that you review your requirements and then compare that against the features provided by each one, then decide based on what complies with your needs.
Remember that you can also download and install a 180 days free trial, possibly for use in a test virtual machine:
