You cannot use backups to merge or migrate active directory across server versions. You need to add the new server you want as a replica DC in the existing domain.

Microsoft has details on replica domain controllers here:

if you really bred more details and screenshots, you should buy a book or webcast, or hire a consultant. This is not a trivial process.
