What is the process for installing PostGIS 2.0? After creating a PostgreSQL database can a ticket be opened requesting the installation?

Our shared PostgreSQL service uses PostGIS 1.5.3 (or 1.3.6 on older machines) - you can't use PostGIS 2.0 with the databases that run on the shared service.
If you need PostGIS 2.0, then you'll need to build your entire PostgreSQL stack from source, with whatever versions of whatever dependencies you need, and then run that as a custom app to manage your databases.
I don't have a specific procedure for that, but we do have general instructions for building software available in our documentation: Installing Software from Source
