Need Help ASAP with Company Merger & Exchange Server 2010

ExchangeEmail Servers

Our company has a  physical 2010 standard exchange server with 5 stores that add up to over 900 GB and the server has almost 800GB free space available.  The other company has a physical standard exchange server with about 200 GB.

A consultant is in charge of the exchange servers...   In a meeting, the consultant explained that he is going to import the other companies email into our exchange server then create a new virtual secondary 2010 exchange server at the remote site and sync the exchange servers.

I was basically told to shut up when I asked how he would sync the 2 exchange servers.

My questions is:

Is it possible to import the other companies 200GB of email to our 900gb email server - sync all that email to the new virtual email server at the remote site (both sites hold the same email) knowing the free space on our mail server.

I would have created a DAG - left their email at the remote site - synced their 200gb to our server - and our 900gb to their server.

Please help me understand how he is going to do this.
