Edge is not a part of AD so you cannot migrate to that machine as ther is no Mailbox role on it.

Here are instructions to migrate all roles:

if you're running a coexisting environment with Exchange 2003:

On your new 2008 server, be sure to disable Ipv6 or you'll run into some issues with auto discover etc:

you might want to install the new server with exchange 2007 on it and then move the mailboxes across.

You may consider to use Acronis Universal Restore - IMHO a fastest and easiest way to migrate your server to a new hardware

No there is no time specification. You can disjoin the old server reset the AD computer account and join the new server and just run the /recoverserver switch and it would get everything back on this server also remember that the server name and Ip has to be the same.
