As far as testing, one can either connect a display via hdmi and a mouse & keyboard via usb, or use VNC.  There's a guide to setup of raspbian and of the VNC server on raspberrypi.org.

Sorry for posing a vague question...  I do have a couple of Pis (Pi
and Pi2, but not Pi3), and have done some graphics stuff in C over
SSH.  So I invoke my program from a shell running emacs on an SSH
session and things appear on a display connected to a Pi.  But I have
not tried VNC there.  I haven't done any real Squeak stuff on Pi and
for Pi; if running Squeak on Pi and interacting with it over VNC is
reasonably fast, I'd go with that path.  But this one involves some C
programs and if people does some cross compiling more on a host
computer, that is also an interesting option.
