No u cannot change server to workstation. Install workstation in different directory. At time of boot computer will give u option to boot from server or workstation.

In answer to your second question, you would be in violation of your EULA, WS license is a different license than Server (mo money).
Good Skill

NT Workstation is a different product so from a licensing standpoint, you would need to obtain and install the full product.

However, I'm wondering if you could just disable some un-necessary services and make the NT Server perform a little better. I use an NT Server as a backup workstation and it performs very similar to my NT Workstation machines. So I'm not sure that installing NT Workstation is going to give you the performance boost you're looking for.
