No need to "build" one, there is one allready.

Run bitcoin-core with -testnet1. If you have to add a node manually use addnode blockexplorer.com add.

You get coins there either from testnet faucets (I got 2 BTC for testing within a few minutes) or mining (low difficulty)

You can use the existing testnet, running bitcoin-core with -testnet.

If you wanted to create your own, you would have to clone bitcoin, change the stuff you want, and get a new genesis block / merkle root.

search: testnet in a box

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I think p2pool can run on the bitcoin testnet. What you need to do is start bitcoin-core with: ./bitcoind -testnet. Then, add to your p2pool startup line "--net bitcoin-testnet". (Syntax might be wrong, I don't know though.) That is what you need to do.
