If it is not domain joined or a domain controller, boot into Server 2008, run setup from the installation source

I suggest you separately set up Win 2012 server and then set up Sql server inside the OS.

Yes, you can do it. SQL Server it's only an application to Windows.
I recommend you to stop SQL Server service before starting the Windows upgrade. The upgrade should be easy to perform since you just need to run the setup and follow the instructions.
