I have in mind to set up a second server from a backup of my current server and run it on a stand alone basis.  The idea being to have a server I can learn to program on. What do I need to to have installed for code work?  How realistic is it to think I can learn SQL and ASP.NET 3.5 from tinkering with it and posting questions  here?

its always a good idea to have a test version of a database to play with. make backups, you will need them for when you make mistakes. For learning sql and asp.net I highly recommend to follow a tutorial as you can find on http://www.w3schools.com/ and if you feel you are up for it, buy a book(s) on the subject(s)
