    Then you can migrate AD resorces with ADMT; https://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/admt-series-1-preparing-active-directory.html

    And check the article for exchang cross forest migration; https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/meamcs/2011/06/10/exchange-2010-cross-forest-migration-step-by-step-guide-part-i/

  • For AD migration, Burak has suggested you enough stuff to work around your situation.

    For Exchange server, Following Exchange server deployment assistant should be best approach for you. This guide is available from Microsoft team and provides step-wise instructions by checking all the required prerequisites. Here you - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dn756393.aspx

    By the way, while it comes to migrate users mailboxes, you may also look into this Exchange migration tool which provides hassle-free environment to get this job done without having downtime.
