Yes you can install DNS & DHCP on the same server.
ID fix tool can be installed on the same server, typically you want to do this where AD is located.

In Windows Server 2012, you can install it all at the same time. You can install ADDS and DNS and DHCP all at the same time through server manager, then configure it after the fact. Your DNS server doesn't need to be a DC but usually, small businesses or solutions do it this way.
