Biggest thing is to get exhaust away from any way for it to get inside,so you need a 100% sealed exhaust venting away from any vent that could let it inside,even if wind shifts.exhaust is not something you ever play with.
With enuf money or ingenuity(s/p) anything can be hidden.
Just make sure the exhaust can't be recirculated.

Just remeber safety first.
Raw Propane is heavier than air,so it settles,don't have it settle into an "enclosed" area where a spark froma leaky fitting could cause an explosion...that would be bad

That depends on if you are serving soft serve, or dipped ice cream or pre packaged ice cream "treats". Many of the rules that apply to soft serve and dipped ice cream do not apply as "treats" are considered single serve. In South Dakota you are not required to have sinks, serve safe, a commissary or any other special accomadations if you are only serving single serve items.

As for a serving window, a metal fabrication shop can make one up for you, or you can do like many vendors do, and just install a sliding aluminum household type window, although you would want to replace the glass with tempered glass or plexiglass.
