What the compiler is trying to tell you is that you have an invalid function definition, namely
C++
void PassTrace(class *Pointer);
Think about that a little bit. What is the type of Pointer? If your definition of PassTrace (i.e. the place where you provide the code for the function) matches the given declaration, how would you access any of Pointer's members? Does the class have member a, or a member name, value? There's no way to know.

Perhaps you meant
C++
void PassTrace(Test *Pointer)
or maybe you want a Template?
C++
template <typename T>
void PassTrace<T *Pointer>
{
   // body of function
}
If you know that you'll never need to test *Pointer for null, you might consider using a reference rather than a pointer, and if you're not going to change the contents of what Pointer points to, then consider marking it as const as well.

Other than that, passing a pointer to a class (or struct) is no different that passing a pointer to anything else:
C++
class myClass {
    // class members ...
};

void f(myClass *pointer)
{
     // function body 
}

int main()
{
    myClass c;
    // instantiate c's data members
    f(&c);  // call f with a pointer to object of type myClass
}
