Will a Server 2008 x64 Key work for a Server 2008 x86 edition?

I have a legal key from a server that had 2008 server installed but it was 64 bit. Can I use that key for a server 2008 x86 (32) Bit Install?

I haven't tried on single license.  But with volumn licenses, it works for me.

I believe it will. It works for Windows 7 but that would be R2. 2008 is based on Vista

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

It depends on the license, but generally not. A single license, without any volume license with Microsoft means you are going to have to repurchase, unless you can get Microsoft to issue you  a new x86 license.

If you purchase the software and both versions came with the server or the package you bought then yes the key should work for both
