How to upgrade from AEM 6.2 to AEM 6.4 with new/fresh installation approach and not the inplace upgrade approach?

For a fresh 6.4 install, you'd follow the same steps for standalone install. Check the Deploying AEM section @ Adobe Experience Manager Help | Deploying User Guide based on your requirements of standalone installation or app server installation and in case you want to set up a separate datastore. Once the server is set up, you could fix the source code and migrate it using package manager or vault tools or a similar tool.
