I'm beginner to this tool.
I need to simulate a cold plate to find pressure drop, temperature drop, hot spots on surface of cold plate. Heat zones have been mentioned in the reference file below.

Staff are not permitted to open/download attachments so please post images. I think you want to set a thermal condition on the model wall: do some of the tutorials bundled in the documentation (click on Help in Fluent and go to the "top" of the Fluent manuals) to see how it's done.

At walls you can provide temperature (Dirichlet) Heat flux (Neumann) or Mixed (Robin) type of boundaries. Heat Flux has the dimension W/m^2. If you have the total heat flox applied (Watt) just divide it be the area of the wall in question and provide the flux for that wall.
As Suggested by rwoolhou: Start doing some tutorials and then start looking into your problem. Doing so you will much better learning curve!

OK, so now compare what you know with available wall thermal options. What about the other sections of the plate & other side of the domain?

The other side is flat surface and no heat flux on that side.

Animation because you are doing transient run?

You need to save data at regular intervals in Fluent, and then use the animation tools in CFD Post. These are significantly improved in 2019Rx, is there a reason for using older software?

You can create animations in Fluent by using the new feature: In the Ribbon go to Solution>Activities>Create Solution Animation. Check the help for more information!
