1)What are the steps which i require inorder to setup Terminal Services on Windows server 2003
If you want Terminal Services for normal Users, you have to install Terminal Services in "Add/Remove Programs" -> "Windows Components"
If you only want to administrate the Server activate Remote Desktop Connection. Right Click "My Computer" -> Manage -> Remote -> activate "Allow Users to connect remotly to this Computer"

2)How can i connect securely to other Windows machines? how can i do it securely?
Use IPSec to connect to another Machine with encrypted Data. This is configured in local security policy.

3)What modes are aviable? Whats the difference? Which mode to allow?
Which modes do you mean ? Terminal server modes (there is only 1 mode in W2K3) or IPSec Modes?

4) What about load balancing ?
Windows Network Loadbalancing (NLB) is one possibilitiy to use for this.
an other approach is to use 2 nic's of the e.g. Intel and use their adapter teaming by driver.
