Welcome to the forms, although 212 users isn't alot, most of the servers I work with have about 500+ users, and its supported up to 1000 i think , although this is not suggested.
To share the database, this is a great kb article
Also this is a great KB article on how to move the users from one BES to another
Its not difficult to add another server, although I suggest you read the install manual, if your using excahnge 2007

Yes, you have it right.
I guess the biggest costs (other than hardware) are your SQL license and 2nd BES license. You do not have to purchase a 2nd BES license as long as you follow the tips above to prevent the services starting so that the SRP key does not get disabled. Another option is to obtain a temporary key from say a trial download, use that key for the 2nd server and if you need to fail over replace it with the production key as the trial key would only work for 30-90 days
