The Citrix datastore server is not just the database but a Citrix server (including RDS) that also happens to host SQL Server Express for the database. This server is also the license server for both Citrix and RDS. It is the primary server of the farm.
Before determining that you want to move that you need to confirm that the other applications you want to run will also play well with Citrix and vice versa. In general though, Citrix likes to be its own thing because of all it runs. Trying to run Citrix on a server that is tweaked to be a SQL Server likely won’t work well. The functions would get in each other’s way.
