Exchange 2010 is not supported on 2012 R2, nor has Microsoft announced any plans to add support for that combination in the future.

You need to have windows enterprise license for DAG. In regards to setting up DAG in single site I don't see any problems.

To provide HA and site resilance  between 2 sites.  You will need more then 2 servers. I have setup DAG's with two servers , one each in a site. This would require administrator to make changes to properly failover from Site1 to Site 2.

That's fine. Just make sure the virtual machines themselves are 2012 Release 1 or 2008.

You can run DAGs virtualized no problem.

Traditionally it was recommending to do RAW LUN mappings for Exchange databases. But technologies such as VMware 5.5 claim you can put the databases directly on virtual hard drives. Also, if your environment is small (100 users or less) you can put them on virtual disks as well.
