My best option IMO is to spin up 3 new VMs - 2 AD/DNS and 1 file server.
Where are you planning on hosting this? I have to assume you don't mean to buy two servers, and setup AD/DNS on each of them, plus then setup a file server on one of them as well? That would be hardware overkill for something like this.
So assuming you did go with a single server - then you're down to two VMs - 1 AD/DNS and 1 file server.
Another option would be 1 NAS, and simply map it to everyone's computer.
You mentioned managing local user accounts - do users move around and use other people's computers? or are they mainly only on their own? If they are mostly single use, a NAS is likely the best option. You'll build the users on the NAS and be done with it.
