What SFTP server software are you using, I do not believe, that is one of the standard software roles included with Windows 2008 R2.

I don't know yet. What is recommended and how can we migrate it from 1 server to another. No Idea, working on this first time.
What software package is currently installed ?
I can see one .msi package SSFTPsetup.msi. Where should I get to know which software is used for SFTP here?
Check Add/Remove Programs, what software package is installed.

How can I configure SFTP and transfer all roles and files from old server to new one I installed it in my new server?

Please suggest!
You will need to list all the roles and files on the old server, and re-create on the new server.
How can I do that?

Its new for me never did it in past.
You will have to check how the application is configured, what usernames have been created.

I do not know what the application is, I assume SSFTP, there must be a configuration application to it, to see how it's been configured, which folders are shared, with what permissions, which will give you an idea of what files and folders need to be copied.
By any chance is the Secure FTP software you used called MoveIT? Each third party application has it own requirements..

web server, Certificate, storage..

I do believe you can create FTP site in IIS and make it secure but 3rd party application seem to do a much better job at this
