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

Can anyone help with the detailed steps to be carried for this process?

The link shared by Arun is comprehensive and includes every aspect

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.
