I have a Magento store set up already working fine It is using Venus Theme,

Now I wanted to use another theme, When I installed and applied the theme, the Homepage is not working properly, UI is broken, nothing shows on Homepage etc.

I was not able to set the Site right after changing the theme.

Now I wanted to install another setup of Magento in my Cpanel with the sample data to show my management and eventuallycustomize the site and move it to live.

for example: www.example.com/test here I want to install a new version of Magento,

Please help me if this possible or guide the ideal way of doing this. much appreciated your response.

    Ok so for new installation you can download Magento package and upload it on your server than can start installation.

It's normal when applying a new custom theme to existing website.
Your first issue mostly relates to static content deploy and permission.

for example: www.example.com/test here I want to install a new version of Magento,

Does your hosting support subdomain? It's better to use subdomain.
Should not put a new install under a subfolder.
But but.. using the same server with the live site is a not good idea. We should have separate servers for testing environments.
