Currently our client has Exchange 2010 on premise, and is migrating to O365 - given that we should keep an Exchange Server on site, what would be the process for installing Exchange 2013 Hybrid Edition (with the free license key from MS) into the environment and removing the Exchange 2010 server?

Documented KB articles would be helpful.

If you have existing on-prem Exchange 2010 servers, you do *not* qualify for the free Hybrid edition. Details are here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2939261

You can simply keep one of the Exchange 2010 boxes for management purposes.

Why not Exchange 2016?  It's included in the O365 subscription as well.

Here are a set of high level tasks. In general, they apply if you are configuring Exchange 2013 or 2016 for hybrid.

Coexistence

Directory Sync

Migration

User Provisioning

What about migrating to O365, removing Exchange 2010, and then installing Exchange 2013 Hybrid Edition with free license?

In my discussions with the O365 support and the presales support teams, an O365 customer can use the hybrid keys supplied by O365 as long as the customer isn't installing the same version that is already installed in the org.  Therefore, if a customer has Exchange 2010 they can install 2013 or 2016 with the hybrid key without issue as long as the customer does not host mailboxes on those servers.
