Metalogix Replicator can be installed on any server in your SharePoint farm that is running the SharePoint web application service.
You can install Replicator on more than one server in your farm, but only Enterprise Edition licenses support running multiple Replicator installations at the same time in the same farm.
For every scenario of installation, and on every server/farm where you will be installing Replicator, you will have to download and run the installer. Downloading and running the installer are both detailed in this document in section Downloading and Preparing the Replicator Installer and section Installing Metalogix Replicator, respectively.
