You would need to visit the PTR page on worldofwarcraft website to get your character set up. There's no system requirements (I've done PTR on my old computer). Basically after you download the necessary files for PTR, your wow launcher will have an option to log onto it. It's actually easier to get onto PTR than most think, but PTR kinda sucks because the people on there have no idea how to use their characters. OS10 took us 2 hours to complete.

It's a free for all. You just need to have the most up to date live patch installed, and then you download the ptr client when it becomes available. If pre-mades are not available you will need to copy your character from live over to the test realm, and that is really the determining factor of who gets in. Queues are often very long (sometimes up to a day) especially with major content patches like this one is going to be. However I have never had to wait as long as the queue says it's going to take, maybe I'm just lucky, or maybe people just drop from queue along the way bumping me up../shrug
