For XenApp 6.5 you will need windows 2008 R2 servers. Check this:

Before you start installing\configuring you need to procure the citrix license for comparison of license http://www.citrix.com/content/dam/citrix/en_us/documents/products/Citrix_XenApp_6.5_Comparative_Feature_Matrix.pdf

Even on a test environment it is better to separate your domain controller, DC, from your farm and your XenApp from the web interface & license.

You can have 3 VMs:
1 vCPU and 1 GB vRAM Web interface & license
1 vCPU and 1 GB vRAM DC
2 vCPU and 2 GB vRAM XenApp server acting as both Data Collector and Session host

On production please note that it is strongly recommended that your DC should not be on a VM. Moreover your Data Collector and Session host roles should be separated.

For now in the test  I allocated the VM's as follows

DC - 1GB RAM
Web Interface,License and XenApp - 2GB RAM

and will keep 1 GB RAM free for physical server.

Thanks

For testing purposes that's fine!!

As I said, in production it shouldn't be that way.
