You can not have two computers with the same name on the network at the same time. If that is a requirement then I can see no other option but prepare the new server with OS and all necessary programs then during off hours take a full backup of the old server and restore it on the new server where you do not overwrite files then demote the old DC connect the new server and promote it to DC

If you decide to give it a new name you can move all data in the shares to the new server then create the shares and as a last thing change your login script that makes the mapping

Since it involves also exchange it would be easier and with a lot less stressful to instal exchange on the new server and move the users over to the new server
