This is a better question for your distributor, but I'll do my best to answer.

No, there is no single package that will program everything.

S7-200: Step 7 Micro/WIN

S7-300 & 400: Step 7 or Step 7 Professional, Pro has all the language types.

S7-1200: Step 7 Basic

HMI: WinCC Standard or Advanced. Advanced includes PC-based SCADA & HMI functions, Standard for all touch panel devices.

LOGO!: LOGO! Soft Comfort

Motion: SIMOTION Scout to program certain motion-centric devices.

There are literally dozens of more packages, depending on what your doing. Drives, safety, process control, networking, etc. Not only is there not one package to do it all, if there were it would be a 900 Gig install. The best thing to do is talk to your local support / distributor.

Also, you don't specify your location, so I can't tell you anything about the likelihood of support being close and / or good.

Hope that helps.
