Not sure what you are asking exactly. Once activated the key(s) will be tied to that one machine. One way to simply activate the keys would be to make a virtual machine and then take a snapshot before you enter them.
To back up the key you can use Advanced Tokens Manager
To change the product key open a CMD as Admin and run "slmgr.vbs -ipk typeyourproductkeyhere". Then to activate type "slmgr.vbs -ato".
Or type SLUI 3 in the start/search box.
