    Ok it looks like its not going to be small job doing this.
    I may miss a few things here but i'll give it my best shot.

    - Migrate all the users from one domain to the other
    - Disable one dhcp scope and use the other, or go with a completely new scheme.
    - With all the users in one domain, have both mx records pointing to the one exchange server and use the recipient policies to determine who has what email address.
    -Then you can do what ever you want with the second server

    Hope that helps
