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:

Create the perfect environment for any meeting

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

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).
