You have done your homework and have almost everything you need. For your complete towing setup, you will need:

Item # 13356 - Curt Hitch (confirmed fit for your 2012 Venza)
Item # C56079 - Trailer Wiring
Item # ETBC7 - 4-Way to 7-Way Universal Installation Kit for Brake Controller
Item # 90250 - Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller
Item # 18159 - Mounting Box (optional, mounting bracket included in Item # ETBC7)
Item # 989891 - Ball Mount Kit (Includes: 1 fixed ball mount, 2 balls, 1 pin and clip, 1 storage bag)
Item # 63232 - Anti-Rattle Receiver Lock (optional but recommended)

This should get you good to go.

Before getting too far, be sure to check your owner's manual for limitations and recommendations for towing a trailer.
