I don't think this is possible.
Why do you want to do this?
User managed instance on a separate server to have a disconnection (for security purposes) between the front-end server/portal and the data/metadata server.

If you feel like you have to do this, set up another machine, and do a backup/restore. Disable alerts, subscriptions, and extracts on the new server. Query away--but the data will only be as fresh as the last backup taken.
But what's the security requirement here, specifically? This request is confusing because it meets no clear need. You can't fully separate metadata and data stores from Tableau Server and still have it function properly. You can run them on separate machines within the same cluster if you like, but they need to be able to talk. It's like locking all your money up in a vault stored on the Moon. Very secure, but totally useless without a means to retrieve it.
Yes, if it is a cluster. Configure the Postgres and the filestoere on the machine you wanted it to be and rest of the components on the other machine. Be cautions to review the hardware while installing the Postgres with the Dataengie and Filestore as these crunches the CPU assuming you are on version prior to 10.5.
