The steps you found are correct.
The zip file mentioned in step c is inside the Ifix  .zip you download. Of course the name difference depending on the Ifix. Also included in this .zip  is a readme, that contains detailed instructions on how to apply the Ifix.

So as for your initial question:
Yes, the Ifix should be applied on all servers (QM, RM,DCC,CCM and JTS), because Ifixes contain fixes for all these products.

 I found some article :

To install the server patch:

a. Stop the CLM server. b. Verify whether the following directory exists: <server_installation_directory>/server/patch. -If the directory exists, back up and then remove its contents. -If the directory does not exist, create it. c. Copy the server patch file,, into the /server/patch directory. d. Clear the application server cache. For instructions on clearing the cache, consult the application server's detailed documentation. For instructions on what to remove, see the "To clear the application cache on WebSphere Application Server", "To clear the application cache on WebSphere Liberty Server" and "To clear the application cache on Apache Tomcat" sections in this file. e. Start the CLM server. f. Run repotools-<app> -clean for each application that is installed to clear the repotools cache. Note: This will also display the help output. For instance: - repotools-jts -clean - repotools-ccm -clean - repotools-qm -clean - repotools-rm -clean g. To ensure that the Data Collection Component mapping files are correctly updated, please follow the instructions in the DATA COLLECTION COMPONENT INSTRUCTIONS section below

Note: For a distributed CLM deployment, complete the same steps on each server, including the DCC server, if the DCC component exists on a separate machine.

just to be sure in few words ... 
stop machine 
copy fix pack
start machine 
run repotools-xxx -clean  on each machine
