IMHO a 5506 is a bit low end for what you want. Out of the box is only supports 10 peer-peer VPNs, although there is an optional "Security plus license", which expands that to 50. That would mean NO room for any additional shops. The 5506 also has some hardware limitations which restricts the software it can run, recent versions of the FTD software do not run on it, but they will on any of the larger units. Lastly, the 5506 can only comfortably keep up with a 50Mb up/down connection, under worse case scenarios.
If you have 100Mb or slower connection into head office, I would suggest a 5508, for up to 200Mb, a 5516. The 5506 is a bit of a step backwards in terms of overall "grunt" from a 5510.
For licencing, you will need some Anyconnect licences, but I *Think* those can be transferred from your old unit.
