Welcome...
WinUAE is an awesome emulator.
I haven't done any FPGA based systems so not familiar there.
I've been meaning to poke at Amibian for the Raspberry Pi, but haven't gotten around to it yet..
Of course, there is always real original hardware too... ;-)

You only need roms kickstart for the system you have intention to emulate

Just for example, for Amiga 500 you need the Kickstart 1.3

These rom files are not included with WinUAE, since there is the copyright on them

And i can't give you those since it's against the rules of the forum

So, you will not find them on the eab file server

Just search in Internet, it's not that difficult to find these small files
