We have 2 XenApp 6.5 HRP1 Servers at a branch office , which do not serve much purpose.

We were considering XenDesktop 5.6 for the branch office .
Can we install Xendesktop 5.6 on the same servers

As i mentioned these servers do not serve much and have no load .

No, xendesktop DDC cannot be installed on a Xenapp server. It will require a separate server.

Definitely not.  The portICA service would conflict with the XA server, and you would still need an XD controller.

You have 2 servers for redundancy.. you *could* put them in as XD (complete reinstall to be safe), but to what purpose?

If the VDI you're planning to give to branch office workers do not require customizations to their VDI and they will perform once basic apps then you can consider Xenapp's published desktop with Win7 kind of view to them (using Windows Aero in 2008). This way you can use existing terminal servers license, Citrix xenapp and mostly importantly reduce number of servers and storage space.
