in my shop, it would mean grabbing another backup of the "production" database and restoring it over the top of the Test Database that the developers and QA groups use for testing.

that way that database has the "latest" changes.

the process would involve either finding an existing backup + log files, or taking a new full back, maybe or maybe not with copy only, and then restoring it on whatever is considered the "test'd atabase.

In somecases the developers request only the structural differences and least bothered about data (database refresh). In that case you need to compare the current copy of production database vs staging/UAT/Pre-UAT databases and script out only the different DDLs and run them on the appropriate environment. Redgate too SQL Compare helped me a lot with such requests.

Where can be a Test Server ? Do i need a separate physical server for this testing or I can place it in the same machine where my production server is available but as a different instance..?

Do you want the testing to impact your production server's performance? Do you want deployment errors to possibly break your production database? If yes, then sure put them on the same server.
