Does anyone know if I can buy a VESA adapter kit later on? Or should I get it directly if I want to hook it up to a monitor arm?

For late models 2012 and so on you have to order it with the VESA mount when you buy it. Otherwise you will need to either disassemble the iMac to get the base off and find some adapters that work or get a mount that handles the base (there are some out their in the market).
I'm looking for a wall mount with some mobility in many degrees, and I'm still looking.
Do you want to mount it on the desktop or to a wall?

You cannot remove the stand on the retina like you used to be able to on the older Macs.
Your best bet is to get it with the vesa mount option from the Apple store. The only point of note is it can make selling it a little more difficult if you plan to in the future.

Ah, beaten to it :)

Want to mount it just on my desk, with either bolt trough or attach it with something in the back of the table.
