Well, yes...Server is free, but totally (no exp. period), but it is only to be run on a Windows Server OS. Workstation you can download and trial it for 30 days.

Yes...but that installs directly on top of hardware, not on an OS. So, if you have a server/computer that is supported (check the HCL: http://www.vmware.com/resources/guides.html), you can run that too.

You can try VMware Player to see if that fits your needs as well:

ESXi (vSphere Hypervisor as "hanccocka" mentioned), is free and if you wanna upgrade it later, you can do so by simply adding a different license (tho it's free, you still need to add a 'free' license).
