Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
Option 1:if we want to do business in the U.S as a foreign entity with merchant account abroad and have an office in Arizona/Tempe. what are the Taxes we have to pay, and do we need a license for our business?
In Arizona, not all businesses are required to have a license and some businesses are required to have more than one license. There is not a "generic" state business license. The basic types of licensing in Arizona are described here - http://www.azdor.gov/Business/LicensingGuide.aspx .
If you are selling a product or engaging in a service subject to transaction privilege tax, you will most likely need to obtain the state transaction privilege tax (TPT) license from the Arizona Department of Revenue (commonly referred to as a sales tax, resale, wholesale, vendor or tax license) and a transaction privilege tax or business/occupational license from the city(ies) in which you are based and/or operate.
The City of Tempe requires a license from all businesses that have a privilege (sales) tax or use tax liability within the city. The City of Tempe does not issue a general business license.
In addition, certain businesses, such as second-hand dealers, mobile merchants, and door-to-door solicitors, may require additional licenses.

if we want to do business in the U.S and have an entity registered in the U.S with a merchant account in the U.S. What are the Taxes we have to pay, and do we need a license for our business?
As long as a foreign entity does business in the US - it should have the tax ID and file the federal tax return. In additional - it should be registered in the state where the business is conducted - as stated above. Having a merchant account doesn't make any difference.
There is no general business license, but the license might be required for specific services or for selling specific products. Also - licenses might be required by the state or local governments.
