Help planning Exchange 2010/2013 on premises with Exchange Online Protection

We have Exchange 2010 on premises, and we´re going to migrate to Exchange 2013, also on premises.
We use a software (popbeamer) to retrieve emails from our hosting to our server; also, our Exchange send connector sends the email to our hosting, and our hosting to the external user.
We like to try EOP, but I do not know the exact planning and configuration needed.
I know some people uses this with Windows SBS 2011, I know it possible, is there´s a guide for implementation?
I know the MX records have to be pointed to EOP, do I have to create all my users with email on the cloud?, what´s the proper strategy to configure EOP?

Best regards,

There are lot of articles, I found these two:

However, I advise you to call MS and get all the details. As, they changes lot of stuff without updating their customer. I spent one month to fix mail routing issue for one of my client.

Based on your comment above you are correct. You need to point your MX records to EOP and then you can have it point to your current smarthost and continue to retrieve mail from there. Aside from that for licensing purposes you should contact MS directly.
