You add the testing line to your sources.list
you add 'Apt::Default-Release=stable' to your /etc/apt/config
you specifically request individual packages from testing by running
apt-get -t testing <packagename>

Double check man pages (and the apt-howto, apt-get install apt-howto)
for syntax details; I'm going on memory.

apt-howto section 3.8 tells more.
