About VPN and microsoft services, etc. Newbie questions!

I am completly new to VPNs and not used to work with Microsoft server or Exchange, etc. but we need to build a VPN to communicate our two officces, which are 600 miles from each other.

The idea is to share everything as if all of us (about 30 people, both sites) where in fact in the same building: windows users / files, intranet, exchange, backups...

As i said, I am quite newbie on this, so i have lots of doubts:

1. How can we implement the fisical conection? Two dedicated DSL lines at 1 Mb/s with a router/firewall in each end would be fine?
2. Will we be able to do that things with ms server (login with a user in the server of the other site, share files securely, exchange server) in a secured way?
3. Any advice will be appreciate it.
