Yes, that should be possible.

Yes, but I don't think you can mix/match dhcp services on the same 
subnet between windows/linux servers.  Are you running k12ltsp or 
k12linux servers doing pxe booting?  It's not hard to make them handle 
other systems and/or subnets as long as they are connected directly or 
through routers that can relay the dhcp requests (the ip-helper setting 
on Ciscos).

This is irrelevant to dhcp, but if you are running ip phones it is 
usually easier to give them backup power through a central poe switch.
