Please let us know the roles running on this server.

i would suggest to run the CAS and HT on one server and you can go for CCR cluster for mailbox server role.
You can go for NLB cluster for CAS nd HT server for HA ....

find the link below for CCR configuration.

As you already have a mailbox role you can't add the existing to a ccr cluster. I
nstaed you need to Install and configure the CCR cluster and move all mailboxes to the cluster - you can't add your existing server to the cluster because the cluster needs to be configured before exchange 2007 is installed.

hence the downtime would only be while moving the mailboxes
