You will regret it - put it on another server - even if its a virtual machine.
If you really must then its really no different than installing it on any other server, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124186(EXCHG.65).aspx

This is not recommended to have exchange and DC on the same server. but if this is necessary for you. Yes   you can install exchange on DC. but some preventive action you must take.

Create a backup of your Active directory using ntbackup utility.
take backup of your registory.
install exchange on the same server. you can take setup guide from MS site.

another sloution is to buy an image software line norton Ghos or acronis and make an imgge of you server than install the Exchange. this image can be usefull if you want your system on an earlier state.

It ok. After installation you need to run Exchange Wizard where you can provide you email domain accounts. like you current domian is abc.local  and your email or external domain will be yourdomain.co.uk . Exchange server autometically accept the message for this domain.  this task can be accomplished. from System Manager. right click on you exchange server and select Internet Mail Wizard for configuring your email domain.check from here for step by step configuration.
