If the answer is yes to both those questions you can deploy as many SQL servers as you like through unlimited virtualisation rights, provided you have enough licences for all the cores in the cluster. If you don't have SA, you can deploy only as many servers as you have core licences. I.E. if the cluster has 200 cores, you can only deploy a max of 200 servers.
SQL Server licences also grant down edition rights, so you can deploy Standard Edition servers in the cluster too.
Hope that helps.
