Some of the questions are a little irrelevant. 
You don't upgrade to Exchange 2003, you install it to co-exist with 5.5,
then migrate database.
One of the most common ways is to install 2003, add it to your existing
site/org, create a new store, then do a mailbox move from 5.5 to 2003.
You can get all your PF, OAB's, and other things over to 2003 by relying
on replication.   I've done this twice and it was painless.

Enterprise Edition.

Exchange 2003 Standard Edition.

Q 3:- How will I know that the Whole Database is migrated(using
PFMIGRATE) to Exchange 2003.

over Exchange 2003 Standard Edition.


Waiting for your reply friends.
