As for the number of engines, what matters is how many you'll be running at any one time.  With a basic oval 5x12, you'd have about 30' of track; assuming double track, you might, if you're ambitious, run 4 two-unit trains, though they'd be nose-to-tail. Add to that a switcher pair on a side track, and you might approach 10 engines running, though it'd be congested as heck. You really don't need the booster, unless you plan to significantly expand beyond the 5x12 in the near future; the only other power consumer might be accessories like signals and switch controllers, but none of those will take much for a 5x12.
