You can "copy" a table from one database to another, even if the field names don't match, with a simple INSERT INTO ... SELECT query.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. INSERT INTO `db2`.`newTable` (`new1`, `new2`, `new3`)
  2. SELECT `old1`, `old2`, `old3` FROM `db1`.`oldTable`;
You could create some sort of a script or application to move the entire database, but seeing as you have to type of the field map anyways you may as well just type out the SQL queries into a .sql file and then execute it.
