Yes you can.
Domain is independent of  architecture

Yes you can.

If you were to go for an older OS you would need it in mixed mode or 2003 native.

As you are using a 2008 DC you can have a 32 bit DC as well as 64 bit and keep 2008 native domain.

The role (DC) is independent of the underlying OS

I thin it will co-exist. How ever with exchange 2010, it will run only on 64-bit. I think outside the box it doesnt make any difference if its x86 0r 64. The only problem you might be having is the application you are running on it.
