Do I need any special hardware to run Bit Locker on a desktop that's part of a domain (Win 7)?
 
Do I need a TPM chip maybe? I don't really understand the usage of the TPM chip?

Are there different types of Bit Locker?

All answers: no.
Before we proceed: did you just get the idea to use it? Why? And have you bothered to read MS TechNet documents about it? You should. :)

The device you want to install bit locker on either does need a TPM chip or you will have to create a encryption key on a USB stick that MUST be in a USB slot when the computer is turned on. No, there are not different versions of bit locker, but it only comes on Windows Enterprise and Ultimate - assuming you are talking about Windows 7. I'm not sure of the levels in 8 that support bit locker.

Bit-locker does offer more than just Full Disk Encryption, but please read this to give you an idea about choosing encryption that fits your needs...

Also, TPM isn't needed, the two authors above are both correct.
