You want to migrate to a new server with the same version?

You will need to create a new server in the same domain, migrate mailboxes to the new server, import certificate, configure DNS to point to the new server.

Well it's pretty simple.
Create a new server with their OS.
do the regular installation of exchange server (without the preparation part if you are going to move them into the same version).
If you are upgrading the process it's called migration, and it's different.

Then just create the Move-Requests to move the mailbox from the Old Server to the New server . and remove the database from the old server and uninstall it on the old server using Programs and Features.

You can also check the mailboxes using this script:

Just to make sure that you are moving All the User's and system's mailboxes.

Among numerous ways for moving Exchange mailboxes, you can opt for easier & straightforward approach. Directly create PSTs from Exchange 2013 mailboxes and import data from PST files into new server mailboxes (as per the requirement). Here, you need to have live production server environment.

In addition to moving the mailboxes, move the public folders (if any), re-home the offline address book, and move your SMTP connectors.
