I think you mean your OS is 32 bit, but no there is no x86, only x64 for any MS Servers.

Even the 2008 r2 Windows was only available as 64bit.

You will have to get new hardware...

There is no Windows Server 2012 or Exchange Server 2013 for 32-bit (or x86) processors.

What do you need is TechNet Virtual Labs - guided hands-on labs.
But there is no real learning without getting your own 64-bit server and building a lab on your own.
Slightly off-topic but it can help you since you are going to study Windows Servers: Technet Test Lab Guides
