We are running a License-Manager for many employees. We have Advanced, Standard and Basic with concurrent licenses. Also we are running a Windows Terminal Server. 

In ArcGIS Desktop it is very easy to Change the license (Advanced, Standard, Basic) via Batch-File: 

The only way I see to change the license is to manipulate the windows regitry:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESRI\ArcGISPro\Licensing\SOFTWARE_CLASS_FN value.

The userinterface to change the license is not comfortable, you need many clicks and an "non automaticly" restart from ArcGIS Pro:

I wish a easy way to change the license at startup from ArcGIS Pro

I agree. For those in the enterprise, arcgis desktop made this easy via a simple system variable change. Why does pro have to be different in this regard? With an environment variable called ESRI_SOFTWARE_CLASS, you'd think it'd apply to all esri software.
