This would probably be the best place to start for stretch. I think testing would be similar but no guarantees.

Tell people what kind of help you need. Is it a language barrier with the wiki? Was there something specific in there you didn't understand? Did you try a step and get an error message? There's no point in repeating the instructions here, that's why I suggested reading the wiki first.

No.
The wiki makes it look pretty easy. I'll even copy it here for you:
Installation

From repository

Users of versions newer than Wheezy can install everything directly from the official repositories.

For users who would like to use the free nouveau driver:

sudo apt-get install bumblebee primus

For users who would like to use the proprietary nvidia driver (again, requires contrib and non-free enabled in your sources.list):

sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia primus

You could use su to switch to root rather than sudo, and could use apt rather than apt-get.
Results not guaranteed as there have been a few posts about this. A common problem is where people have previously attempted to install nvidia-driver rather than bumblebee and it messes up configuration.

Is there some reason you need Testing? Your posts suggest that you aren't prepared to actually test a Debian development issue.

As much as I like parrots, "parrot linux" is not Debian. This is something you should have included in the details on your first post.
There are over 100 distros based on Debian, "Parrot" is 1 of them, but none of them are Debian, each distro has it's own unique packages and characteristics.
For help with Parrot Linux, may I suggest:
https://docs.parrotsec.org/community
Or
https://community.parrotsec.org/c/support

No need to apologize, also they have their site in several languages:
