@GreyMatterOne There is not a matching certification as the CompTIA A+ course is geared towards hardware and vendor neutral software. Microsoft does not have a hardware certification. You can find the Microsoft Certifications here. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/

It depends, there are a variety of MCSA and Azure Role based certifications. So it would depend on which Microsoft technology you wish to focus. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/mcsa-certification.aspx Again, none of the Microsoft certifications focus on hardware. However, at this point, If I was starting with certifications, I would probably start with Azure Fundamentals https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/azure-fundamentals
