player = free, limited functionality
station = commercial, full functionality
I think the major difference from a practical point of view is in the vmware-tools package. This is a set of extra drivers that greatly improve performance of your vm images. They are easy to install in the station version but the player version requires a bit of fiddling. You may want to consider vmware-server, which is also free and sits somewhere in between these two. Note that you cannot have both player and server installed at the same time.

License? Did you get the server edition after all? The last time I installed the player edition, registration was not required. The keys should work, though. It's not clear what happened. Maybe try obtaining a new set of keys.
