Their are couple of approaches you can follow.

Back up a farm by using built-in tools

You have to manully apply the all the customization and AAM settings.

Back up a farm by using SQL Server tools

in this approach you have to rebuild the farm and configure the SSP and web apps, deploy all the customization and apply the AAM settings. At then end attach the database to web apps.

Third option is using the 3rd party backup & recovery tool.
