Apply different password policy for different OU in Window 2012R2

I was told that the password policy can only apply to the domain level. Is it possible to apply different password policy for different OU ?

You can do that with fine-grained password policies, but not for OUs, only for groups or users.
Open the Active Directory Administrative Center (not the "Active Directory Users and Computers" MMC!), open Your Domain > "System" > "Password Settings Container" in the left pane, look in the right pane under "Tasks" to create a new policy.

Just check my domain / forest level is still in Window 2003. There one DC still in Window 2008 (not R2). Can this option be supported ?

Functional level 2008 should work, but you should look into retiring that relic anyway.
