Perhaps you can expand on what kind of help you are looking for?

I would suggest setting up a virtual machine as a domain controller. Call the domain something valid like lab.<domain.com>. If you register the domain you can also then go on to get a free certificate from Let's Encrypt and play around with NetScaler.

On that Domain Controller, set up DNS. You can also use this for the management tools and licensing if you want - not recommended in the "real world" but this is a lab.

Next up you want your new servers to be domain members. Create an OU structure as well for testing out any Citrix-specific OU's

Install the necessary components. on each server.

Other than these generic things you need to be a bit more specific in what areas you need/want help.

Other than that look at the Citrix website and others such as Carl Webster's site to get the introductions

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

unfortuntly i do not know exactly what they call this citrix system.

I think Citrix_Virtual_Apps_and_Desktops .
example: I want to publishing lets say : 7zip for all Citrix Desktop users. 
we start management server and install 7zip on this management server, after that start image script( i am not sure) then creates other citrix farm server including 7zip on it.

Follow the guide I linked to. That is exactly what you will end with

Also you need to learn the basics because you dont install an application onto a management server and push it out.

Besides the domain controller, at a minimum you will need to set up a Citrix license server, delivery controller, StoreFront server, and VDA host. Some of the components may be set up on the same server. If you will want external access, then you will also need an ADC (Application Delivery Controller - formerly called a NetScaler). Start with the links that Tony sent you, but it may be helpful to take a Citrix course to get a handle on the basics.

Did you call your domain mybrokencomputer.net?

If you are blindly following the guide and not making changes to things like domains then you need to go back and do that

To be precise it is -one- way

There are others  such as provisioning sevices but for your lab it makes more sense to start with just a pair of pre built virtual machines.

Commented:
Yup. Now I'm the one who could've worded it better. :)
In fact, since  I work mostly with ADC & StoreFront, in my lab I only have pre-built machines.
