seems a dedicated server is a little overkill
Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Ideally, you should have another server; however, it's technically not a requirement.  It's not that big of a deal if you aren't securing a lot of stuff since the database will be relatively small. A VM server is an effective option if you have it.  It's just a service and database.  You just need to make sure you don't have any port conflicts with other services running on your server. 

In an AD RMS environment, TCP port 445 is used to provision an AD RMS server, but this port is also the file sharing port for all computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or later. Unless you have a specific need for other computers on your network to have access to this port, you should restrict the scope so that only the AD RMS cluster has access to TCP port 445 on the AD RMS database server.

Yes, but there could be licensing concerns that may affect your bottom-line, so sending RMS content to a bunch of external recipients probably isn't a good idea until you read the details on the licensing.

The recipient needs an RMS software (like Office) to "consume" RMS-protected content.
