Yes, it can be done. Install new server, just move the individual mailboxes to the new server. Some things you need to think about though - public folders - replicate and then rehome, routing group master - if deployed in same group, ensure the new server is the master.
RUS, set the new server as the RUS. Any forms you have should be replicated to the new server as well and rehomed. As for removing from the DC, this can be done - follow the MS white paper (will involve registry hacks).
Hope this helps.
