I hope I posted this in the correct forum.

For Router-->Pix 506e--->LAN I would need to create and /30 network with a straight through cable and a straight through cable to my switch right? For DHCP I have my Windows 2008 domain controller handling DHCP, and DNS, is there anything else I'm missing?
I would like for my router to do NAT/PAT instead of my firewall. So does this sound right?
If you are connecting the router directly into the pix then you need a crossover cable. If the router and pix interfaces are connected via a switch then straight thru for both of them.
As for NAT/PAT, it can be done on either. Most common setup is to do it on the pix but it depends on the addressing given to you by your provider. There is nothing wrong with doing it on the router if that is where the public addressing is located.
