I want to restore a single sharePoint site from a site collection backup. My question is, is this possible. And how is this possible.
Are there any useful commands?

You can't restore a site from site collection backup. Couple of things you can do.
So big thing, if you have access to Production farm.
A Site Collection backup contains all Webs within the Site Collection. It is not possible to extract any one particular Web from the Site Collection for restore.
at first run SharePoint Management Shell then past the below code..
Restore-SPSite http://sptest/sites/testbackup -Path C:\backupfile.bak -force
http://sptest/sites/testbackup ---> is the site collection name.
C:\backupfile.bak ---> is the file path.
