I hope this isn't a stupid question, but here goes anyways...
I'm still pretty new to Exchange 2010.  I set up a test CAS and HT server and made it routable to the Internet.  I now want to replace this test server with a different system.  What's the best way to move those roles?  I'm sure it's easy but when I google changing exchange 2010 roles I don't get much.  The new server that I want to move these roles too is the same version, sp level, etc, and it already has the HT and CAS roles enabled.  Please advise.

but the HT role...in order to move it properly I would need to move the IP to the other server since there are message routing rules setup in the firewall pointing to that IP address...

better to create another rule on your firewall to point to the new ip, because its not recommended to change the exchange server ips
