Just download the RSAT from Microsoft and the use Programs and Features to cut on the Remote Server Administration Tools you want to use.

The download is here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7887

The instructions after the download are here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee449483(v=ws.10).aspx

As mentioned, RSAT will do it for you.  If you want to have scripting ability via PowerShell, you could install PowerGui and PowerQuest AD Management as well as Microsoft Active Directory snap-ins for full granular scripting environment.

Yes, you can.  Refer to link below and it works for Win8 even though the article was written for Win7.

It won't work for Windows 8.1 though. You will get an error. 8.0 is fine, but it requires the SP3 version of the Exchange 2010 Management Tools. 8.1 is the client version of Server 2012 R2 - which Exchange 2010 does not support.
