I don't believe you can do a 32- to 64-bit upgrade at all.

You can do a migration, though.  You can install 2012 on a different server (could be a VM) and migrate almost everything to the new server.

You'd have to reinstall applications on the server, though.  What all functions does your server perform?

you can never upgrade a 32 bit OS to a 64 bit OS

Check the server brand web site to see if your server is 64 bit capable.  I suspect it is 32-bit because it isn't.
