Will there be any changes required in SQL Server Configuration or application to run SQL Server 32 bit on a Windows Server 64 bit ?

NO, no changes are required to run SQL Server 32 bit on a Windows Server 64 bit.  As 64-bit Windows uses Microsoft Windows-32-on-Windows-64 (WOW64) subsystem to run 32-bit programs without modifications.

Most 32-bit software will still function because of a Microsoft emulation layer (WoW64), which enables 32-bit programs to run as though on a 32-bit version of Windows by translating instructions passing in and out of 32-bit applications into 64-bit instructions.
