Does setting up a site-to-site VPN requires both sites to have fixed IP ?

Are you using routers? What kind? What is your ISP situation? I would go out on a limb and suggest that you need to have static IP addresses, especially for ease of administration. Depends on your situation.

No, that is no needed, although it depends on your network configuration. If your router or the last internet-node supports dynamic IP, it will work.
Suppose you have one central router in both networks with an ISDN dail-up to an internet provider.Every day the router calls the provider and gets a new IP address. But the connection to your LAN of the router is not changing at all: the router takes care of the changed address and all your systems of to point their default gateway to the LAN port of the router.
If you have a dail-up in the VPN server, it's a bit different, but basically the same.

Regards.
