Go read https://www.physicsforums.com/insights/the-us-graduate-school-system/ immediately, if you haven't already.

As for MS vs MSc... you'll have to explain the differences between these degrees in your educational system. To US ears, they sound equivalent.

Other than that, yes, you should expect to take the physics GRE and TOEFL before you apply.
