I can answer some of the questions being that my S4B is on MS Office 365 cloud.
We have a on-premise AD running AD 2008 r2 running Exchange 2010 and leveraging Azure Sync tool to sync our AD users to the cloud.

So yes it will work with Exchange 2010, so yes it will work with that part.
I just read through MS step by step and I did not see anything about limitation running on a 2003 FL or DL.
Here is the link I read it from and under the AD part it just talks about extending the AD schema, which can be done on any DC level and DC itself.
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn951362.aspx.  
That should answer your first question about even starting to install it.

The link I supplied should help with the other three questions.

For your Second question, in case of SFB standard Edition you won't be able to use a dedicated SQL server, it will use SQL express on same server along with SFB
