I have justadded wds on a 2008 r2 dc in a vmware 5 lab enviroment and succesfully used it to create a test machine as a vm by manually creating a vm  powering it up and pressing f12

so

1 can wds do dns settings for the machine as my dc in on x.x.x.202 and my router is on x.x.x.1
so when I build a new vm manually and pxe boot it it gets dns settings from wds

2 can wds do join dom

Mdt is essentially a sophisticated set of scripts that help you automate all your imaging and deploment needs.  It works well with wds.  As for answering a pxe boot request accross a router, that is dependant on the router and whether it is setup to relay bootp requests.

As commented MDT is a much more flexible and powerful tool for configuring OS's.
Yes DT will allow a machine to join a domain.

I'd go for the x64 version, can make images for both x86 and x64.

The AIK needs to match the Bitness of the OS it will be installed on. eg. if the server you put MDT on is Server 2008 R2, then you will need to put the 64bit AIK in.
