dcpromo this server to a DC
bring up the 2nd server as a DC joining the forest

Once replicated dcpromo down the first server

You need to setup everything on the new workgroup server from scratch. After you have installed the software/apps and created the users [same names] you can copy over their profiles [settings and documents\user name].

I would suggest hiring someone qualified to do this server migration or you may find yourself with a mess and end up hiring someone anyway.
