First save your original recovery with:
cat /dev/block/acta > /sdcard/orig-recovery.img
Then copy your test-recovery to the sdcard (the name may be 'new-recovery.img' or whatever you want - the filename is irrelevant).
Now move the test-recovery to the recovery partition:
cat /sdcard/new-recovery.img > /dev/block/acta
Now you may test it by turning the device off. Then holding down 'Vol -' and pressing the power-button for 2 seconds and releasing it while keep holding down the 'Vol -' until the recovery starts (or doesn't if it isn't suitable for this device)
. It may take 10-20 seconds until the recovery starts.
If you want to restore the original recovery, just enter:
cat /sdcard/orig-recovery.img > /dev/block/acta
