With all of the "How do I" questions, my blunt answer is "hire someone to do a full audit and documentation."  That is just way too much stuff to try and teach over a single EE question.

As commented by Cliff you it will be easy and safe to hire an Exchange consultant.
You can see all these information over web. Instead of putting all together in one question.

Furthermore you have repeating question seems like you are not familiar with Exchange.
If you are not familiar please do not try to make changes as it may lead to errors and warnings.

Thanks

I agree that mist of this can be found with google searches and some experience and basic exchange knowledge. But a few, for example whether you use a load balancer, can only be answered by knowing what equipment is in your network and nobody here could possibly answer that. Which is a sure sign that someone is in over their head and *needs* a more experienced hand assisting them. EE simply cannot replace professional consulting.
