I can set the voltage and current of the TMC2130 driver manually. But, in which cases some of the components could burn up?

The driver has a potentiometer to change the voltage that is giving to the motors. [...] As one person answered me in another question, I would need 3.2 V to make the motor work well (2. Ω * 1.3 A = 3....

How should I connect a separated 5 V source to an Arduino connected to a RAMPS board

I would not recommend changing Arduino powering. You can either do as you say and power Arduino by giving it regulated 5V to Vin, but then the ATMEGA2560 still will be powered through the 5V voltage ...
