How would one go about setting up a dedicated server for console game crunching, for say, Halo or something? And more specifically, how does the Xbox Operating system interact with that server to transmit and receive reliable data for the game in question?

Some newer information is available. Some servers do contain a powerful GPU not to render graphics, but to do advanced geometry. Also, rarely is it a single server , but a cluster of servers.

DarkRush says:

Came here from For Honor anyone else lol, since THEY ADDING THEM TO THE GAME

Fernando Salazar says:

there are ways to improve all this, and is because a certain amount of factors.
too much information is being send, I think the console should compress the information, so the server receives less information and process faster and lighter.
also the hardware is not powerful enough, and to play you need at least 4MB per second to play kind of OK, so internet, Hardware, and information needs to be improve, but most importantly compress the info so the server can work lighter, they need to design the games to send compress partial information, for example is unnecessary for the game to send the color information to the server, but just the actions and characters.
