How do we set up a staging link like and not make it indexable by search engines and also create a username and password to even access the link

Are you just trying to set up a development area for Wordpress? What you are asking for could be achieved in a number of ways for a couple of different reasons.

One way:
edit wp-config.php and these lines

Another way:
install wordpress on the new domain. after you finish, export your mysql databse, open it, replace the temporary domain with your permanent domain, create a new db, run the sql script for it, change web-config mysql info accordingly.
