You probably don't need a server, just a decent router (no cheap-ass Netgear!)

If you really have to ask those questions then you don't have the requisite skills to be doing this on your own. You need to hire a professional.

If you are planning to lock down the PCs and work out billing etc you will need a server and cyber cafe software like those you linked - though the server can just be another PC in most cases.

I don't really recommend letting your customers install loads of crap so a router only option is probably not such a great idea. You could maybe look at an integrated appliance that did AV and URL filtering but they could still screw your PCs over with just that.

A friend of mine setup a cyber cafe and he installed a load of thin clients to run off a nice beefy server, system is pretty well locked down as users are only using a virtual pc and when user is finished, the system autmatically reboots and sets up a new clean system for next person.

It's easy enough to lock down a PC using local group policy, although if there's dedicated cyber-cafe software that can do the same thing that's probably a better route.
