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.
