A little searching
would give you these answers ... as would any of the links in my signature. BPS (BlackBerry Professional Software) BlackBerry Professional Software Express
BlackBerry SBE (Small Business Edition), is an older version of BES (replaced by BPS)... much like MS has Exchange and also Small Business Server.
If you only have 5 users, I'd recommend BPS ... the only thing you lose is the ability to use an Enterprise IM Client such as Sametime or Communicator ... all other normal IM programs like AIM, GTalk, etc will work.
If you already have BES, you'd be laying out more money for software that does less ... but it lets you install the software on the Exchange server and be supported. I suppose you might be able to sell your BES license to someone else, but I don't know if that is possible; I'm far from an authority on licensing.
