The 'Server' designation means that the OS comes bundled with things such as OpenDirectory (for user/group/resource management) and host of other features that are meant to be used to manage and 'serve' client machines on a network.

You typically would install the server OS if you were managing multiple Macs in an office of home office type environment.

Yes, you can easily transfer files from a Mac to another Mac. This Apple KB article about Migration Assistant might be of use to you.
