It is not recommended to club two Server application into one. Say, if you need to do some maintenance for your exchange server and you need a downtime, that means a downtime for SharePoint too. Next is performance, server will be surely impacted with both application, next is IIS both uses IIS heavily and you will surely have conflict with IIS ports.

So answers is No.

I've tried it as part of an SBS to regular windows server migration and it failed miserably. The IIS virtual server settings were changed and Exchange largely stopped working.

I don't recommend it. Two separate servers is the way to go.

Avoid this in Production.  In non-prod you can do it, but you'll likely have to use hostheaders for your SharePoint sites.

No.  No longer supported on Client OS.  Closest you could do is running it on Windows 8 using HyperV, or on Windows 7 using VMWare.

SharePoint is a server based application and cannot be installed on client based OS. Client Based OS are design to access the information not to process the information. So answer is , you can't install it on Win7. Read the system requirement guide.

On a side not to amit's comment above.  SharePoint 2010 COULD be installed on a client OS for dev purposes.  However, it's not possible with 2013.

Terminal server - I believe so, but why would you want to?

Because my company does not want to buy a new server.  We don't have any virtual servers

You can update your company, SharePoint 2013 need Windows Server OS and cannot work on client OS.
