First off, you should post this in the BES admins section.
Second, I don't know about hosted solutions, but I think you can.
Third, you will not be able to get BES functionality without BES. Your users can get their e-mail onto their BB via BIS if you set up exchange to allow those connections, but they will not get calendar, contacts or tasks wirelessly. That is why we all pay so much for BES. Then there are the security issues. No BES = no top level policy. you cannot remotely kill a device or set restrictions/permissions. Also, if you had any MDS usage, that will go too.
