What, if any are, the pitfalls or results I may see if I want to build a new server for a new sharepoint 2013 instance, and restore from a backup made from a different server with a different name?

All windows erver 2012, Sharepoint 2013, same domain, different computer name.

So you have a single server farm right now (SP & SQL on same box), you've backed it up and want to restore it to a new server to create a second farm.  Correct?  Are you just restoring the farm (meaning you created the backup in Central Admin)?

I suggest you read the "Restoring as New" section in this article:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee663490%28v=office.15%29.aspx
