"I am wanting to add a win 2003 machine (development server) to win 2003 machine (production server). "  It is not possible to Add a Windows 2003 machine to a Windows 2003 machine....  I don't know what you mean?  Is there a domain involved....could you provide more information?

There is a domain involved.
For example, the domain name is Domain1
Both the development and production servers are under this domain. Let's say, development server's full name is called DevServer.Domain1.com and production server is named ProdServer.Domain1.com.

I am wanting to create a user(user_test) in DevServer in the active directory user folder. Then, I am wanting to add this user to my sql server database in the ProdServer.

1) Go into Active Directory Users and Computers...browse down the USER OU
2) Right click the Users OU and choose >> New USer  ...create a user called USER_TEST
3) Enter a password for this user and hit OK to save the new user
4) Now open SQL Enterprise Administrator utility....and through SQL add the domain user to the database security.

In Active Directory Users and Computers, I see a folder called "Saved queries" and Domain1.com.
Under Domain1.com, there is no USER OU. However, there is a USER folder, is this the same thing?

a user account can exist anywhere, and since it sounds like you have two child domains in the same forest, this user can have rights anywhere, due to AD.

Good Luck,
