Hi does anyone know if there's Exchange 2016 Server Install adviser?
I need to know if this Server is capable of running it for 25 Mailboxes but not 100% if it's best practice?

Basically I have a Server already running Windows Server 2012 R2 Std on a Dell PowerEdge T420 with 32GB RAM/Intel Xeon CPU E5-2420 v2 @ 2.20Ghz (2 Processors), RAID1 for OS + RAID5 for Data Storage (currently has 1.55TB Free space) no Virtual Machines just running McAfee EPO database and sharing about 1TB of data.
Hard Drives are all SAS 6Gbps.

They have the 2 VM's licence with their 2012 so I could install Hyper V onto this 2012 Server which is just acting as Mcafee EPO/FIle Data Share Server with nothing else installed.

Would appreciate any advice/feedback.

Many Thanks in advance

You would have to virtualize the existing server to add a VM to this.  The license is 2+1 - 2 VMs plus 1 physical install where the physical install does NOTHING other than Hyper-V and directly related support of hyper-V (Hyper-V backup, for example).  

Take some time and plug in the numbers in the excel sheet for sizing Exchange here:
