In my opinion buying a test kit not required immediately, you can buy later on.
I do had purchased same earlier but I am hardly using it.
My advise will be to buy API freshwater master kit.

I am not an expert but let me answer on some of your queries:

1) using borneo wild substrate additives
2) base i am using power sand 2kg small& 2kg medium
- Not used

3) 6-7 kg my old aquarium ada soil and one 9kg bag of new ada soil i am using
- Must keep the slop and use rocks to support intermixing of plants.

4) 4kg powder ada soil for scape finishing

5) light i am using are one licah 900 and petrosaur light images given below
- I am currently using Liach

6) i will be using sunsun304B uvb canister filter with filter media (clay ball,ceremic ring, activated carbon,and last one is polyfill
- You should remove carbon after initial period.

7)plz suggest co2 diffuser which should i use inline or normal internal co2 diffuser as i am having 3kg co2 cylinder with solenoid
- Have used both, currently going with normal internal co2 diffuser as I can see lot of bubble and feel happy with that.
With inline diffuser I was not able to see much of bubbles.

8) will be using seachem safe with tap water.
9)will be making aquarium with 8mm glass any suggestions regarding this :
- 8 mm will be sufficient.
10) plz suggest where should i buy rock and drift wood in Kolkata will i get in galif Street for hardscaping
- I am not from Kolkata, can't suggest. Only I can suggest online indianaquarium.com

11)plz suggest me should i buy dry ferts lab grade or where or should i use seachem npk liquid and seachem micro:
- For Macro buy lab grade chemical, if you are from Kolkata you can buy it from college street(heard on the blog). Otherwise you can look for any shop selling chemical for schools, college.
- For Micro buy rexoline CXK from behala, Kolkata(Shop name - banabati) or buy CSM+B (one person selling on face book).

12) i want to do carpeting and colour full planting where to buy
- For plants you can buy from Sreepadma.com or Goaqua.in

Hope it will be of some help for you.
