First of all there is no way to exclude/include one server from CAS array in a single site.

How did you configure CAS array now, are you pointing your CAS array DNS name to old CAS server? If yes then you need to change IP in DNS record to new Server. Also configure all required services like OWA/ECP/Autodiscover Virtual directories as same as in old server and point all DNS records to new CAS server.

I have an old server that has CAS array running now. I want to decommission this server and move the CAS array to a new server. I did not config the previous CAS array. I am just a newbie for this CAS work.

Need advice (step by step) as how to proceed to configure CAS on the new server and move the services over from the old server.

CAS array, is just a object/dns record and don't need to be moved from one server to another. You promote new server on same site and it will be added to CAS array automatically, then you can remove the old server.
