Bought my bike used (2003 ace 750), has 12k on it. What service should I get done beside oil and oil filter? How do I find what services to get and at what miles?

Spark plugs, clean and lube the chain, air filter. You should be fine after that.
My chain is a little loose, is it hard to tighten?
It should have some slack in it to a certain extent. It's not hard to tighten if it is too loose though, there's just 2 bolts on the back to turn to loosen or tighten it.
Brake fluid, coolant also
^knew I was forgetting something.
How old are the tires? Look at the date on them. Over 5 years get them changed.
flush brake fluid, flush coolant, change spark plugs, clean carburetor (and check sync if you have 2 carburetors), adjust valve lifters (if applicable), test battery (replace if necessary), new air filter, if chain...clean, lube, adjust tension; if rear diff...new gear lube, check tires for wear & signs of age...replace tires and tubes (if spoked wheels), lube clutch cable, lube throttle cables; pick a few on the list and get em done...do this over the next 6 months; I would prioritize the battery, brake fluid, coolant, tires, and chain/rear diff...
