After I install redhat 9 server, I get shell command line. I am not a fan with command line. Is it possible to get GUI desktop like client ?
If not, Can I install client version and set up DHCP, DNS, Apache server..on it ?

Redhat 9 server doesn't install a GUI, that's what most servers are, command line as X or a GUI just wastes resources on the machine. You should learn to use the command line as you can do everything from it to get a functional server.

I myself have 8 computers, all Linux... two of them have X installed. The others are accessible remotely. So it is possible.
