I have a lot of questions for that project.

Also setup LUNS in Vmware & install exchange 2013 with HA & DAG.

What is the best scenario for ? 1 Big Database or we can separate them at 2.
Also what about retention & archive operations ?
Is Better to use 2 online databases and 2 passive crossed at each server.
What is the best setup for storage ? 1 raid 10 or 1 raid 10 for main databases and 1 raid 5 for archive databases.

What your question is referring to is a vary wide range of planning and configuration. You have also not specified if this is a multi-site environment.

The below is based on a single site design...

2x CAS/Mailbox servers (DAG) - both roles on same server
Hardware Load Balancer (CAS)
Internal and External URL same - autodiscover.domain.com, mail.domain.com
Certs - mail.domain.com, autodiscover.domain.com

You can have up to five databases active on any one server.
Therefore if you are deploying a DAG, have a two/three split.

HLB as already advised.

Although I think you could well benefit from consultancy support.

Simon.
