Yes, that font can be used for testing because the license does not
prevent free redistribution.

If the font is used without modification, nothing else needs to be
done.

If the font is modified in any way (subsetting, adding or removing
OpenType features, etc) then it can still be used, but under the terms
of the license it must be renamed and the new name must not use any
part of the "reserved name" specified in the license.

Yes.
