I have my new Server 2012 R2 server setup as Hyper-V host with the 1st VM as Domain Controller (APES.loc).

My first off possibly a handful of questions is- do I need a DNS server ? If so should it be a dedicated VM?

Dumb question. I had my old DC for so long..
It automatically added the role at AD setup.
Now lets see if I can figure out how to set it up

ADDS (the role required for a DC) requires DNS. This is usually installed and configured automatically. You shouldn't need to do anything except point clients to it.

I had to configure forwarders. The 2 that my isp uses. No biggie.

 New Problems.

The same 2 forwarders worked fine on the old box so I'm not sure if it has anything to do with it or NIC Teaming but my desktop on the same LAN is dragging real bad and barely loading pages

DNS issues could introduce delays during initial lookup, but it has no impact on throughput. If you are using a speedtest tool and are seeing slower speeds from your workstation (as you indicated), that isn't a DNS issue at all.
