move a database from one server to another

I am using Oracle 11g R2 on Oracle Enterprise Linux 32 bit.
I have 2 servers , LinuxActive and LinuxPassive. I am trying to dismount the file system of the datafiles and control files ... from one server and mount it on the other.
I previously opened a thread here concerning this subject and reached a result that it can be done, now i have questions about the details.
I have installed Oracle software on both servers where ORACLE_BASE is /u01/app/oracle and ORACLE_HOME is /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1 on both servers.
I created an orcl database on LinuxActive where all its datafiles, control files, redo logs, flash_recovery_area is on a disk group mounted under /oradata.
I want to dismount /oradata from LinuxActive and mount it to LinuxPassive and start up the orcl database from LinuxPassive instead of LinuxActive.
I may need to revert back /oradata to LinuxActive.
What steps should I do? should I migrate my spfile also to /oradata?
Should I create an orcl database on LinuxPassive?
Do I start up my database like i do when i build an Oracle dataguard database ? from a pfile of the old database?
