Project Name — If you work in a large organization with multiple projects, keep in mind that other people in your company may need to search for this project, so give it as descriptive a name as possible and adopt a naming convention. Examples: Anytown News iOS - Development, McDowell’s Chicago Android - Production.
Live/Test — Ultimately, you should have both a Test build (development for sending test messages) and a Live build (production for sending messages to customers).
Apple treats the production and development servers separately, so a device token for test sandbox will not work on production sandbox. See iOS Channel Configuration in Configure Channels.

While anyone should be able to follow these instructions and send a push notification, this is a technical process and should be completed by a developer with access to the proper mobile development tools and credentials for developer programs.
After creating a project, you can configure the channels you want to send messages to. See the linked setup information for each:
After completing channel configuration, create a test group you will use as the recipient for your first message.
