i was doing a bit of research on sbs 2008 essentials and i could not find an answer either way.
 
is it possible to do an in-place upgrade of sbs 2008 essentials to sbs standard?   if not is it possible to install exchange on it?

You can not upgrade to that version directly so, there no in place upgrade.
