be aware that ssl certificates for .local will no longer be accepted by most public certificate providers.. After Nov 1, 2015 they will be untrusted http://www.digicert.com/internal-names.htm

Any particular reason for creating a completely new AD domain and adding that complexity?
This blog gives you an outline of the process with involves creating cross forest trusts.

How many users in the current domain?
If there is not many users, consider migration using ExMerge.
Have you checked http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc974332(WS.10).aspx - ADMT Guide: Migrating and Restructuring Active Directory Domains?
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Exmerge isn't available after Exchange 2003
firstly, you're looking at changing your AD domain which makes this much more than an exchange migration.

You'll probably end up creating a brand new domain and setting up a trust between to the two to allow you to migrate user accounts and settings across. you can then deal with the exchange move.

Consider how much hassle and disruption you can handle before progressing with this.
Keeping the existing AD domain makes migration from 2010 to 2013 hugely easy.
