Depending on which exam path you wish to take will tell you what books you need and how many exams you need to take. Information is found at the link below.

http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/mcse-certification.aspx

1.
2. You can take them one at a time till you pass.
3. Enterprise for example will need you to be familar with 20122 server edition
4. Tests are taken through a company called prometric, you will need to register to take and book exams. Exams are taken at an examination centre and that depends on where you live and who is available near you to take them. You cannot take them online.

5. They are available online and at training centres, again depending on where you live.

Sure can. I have personally used and currently use CBTnuggets, (link provided below) for my MCITP exam preparations.

And to sit practice exams I am currently using MeasureUP. Has worked for me to get used to the Microsoft styled exams.

I have found TrainSignal's DVD based training courses very good.  Most of the server courses run about $300
