You can, but I’d advise against it since an unrelated 3.8 crash could
take down your production instance.

Any more detail will be very much dependent on your environment –
operating system, install/deployment method, etc.

Sure, but it’s non-trivial. You’ll need another database repository and
appropriate setups with your web server. Really, the only painful issue
is the mail gateway. Well, and if you want to simultaneously change
Perl versions while using mod_perl, you’re better off making a different
choice.

Personally, I would use a virtual machine.
