If we install Lync standard edition for now, can I upgrade to enterprise edition
by simply entering a new license key or I need to reinstall the server

No, you can't directly upgrade Lync standard edition to enterprise edition by entering license key. You need to re-deploy the setup and choose enterprise edition with all prerequsites like SQL backend detabase.

if you want to move to enterprise edition, first you must install it in your farm and move cms to enterprise server, than move your users to enterprise pool, after migrate all users and after move cms you can uninstall standard server, with key you cannot upgrade becuse there is functional differences between standard and enterprise servers.
