I believe I could install Veeam free on a VM on the old Host and do a backup of the VM and also live migrate to the new host. Without purchasing more licenses (since this is a one-off instance where I'd be doing this), is there any other option to accomplish this?
Somewhat related licensing question: If I were to setup a proxy server outside of the current VM I'm running with Veeam Backup & Replication on it, would that require more cpu licenses as well if that proxy server was running on a different VMware host than my current host?
Thanks for any recommendations/information you can provide about this.

Besides the option with installing Veeam Backup Free (which is fine), you can temporarily revoke the license from the current host, backup the VM residing on the old one (license will be automatically assigned to it), revoke the license again and continue backing up VMs on the new host.
Installing additional proxy servers does not require any licenses. Only hosts you're backing up/replicating from are licensed.
