I'm implementing my own drag and drop of bitmaps in a CScrollView window. Right now I redraw the entire view for each movement, but this is not a good solution since I'm going to have quite a lot of graphics in this window. What is the most efficient way to do this? Can I somehow read a section of the view into memory, draw my bitmap there, and the next time redraw only that section and so on.

First thing you need is clipping. This means you need to repaint only what you need, not the whole view. For example, when you drag a bitmap, you take previous rectangle of the bitmap and current rectangle of bitmap and compute the smallest rectangle that contains both of these. Then you set this rectangle as a clipping rectangle and draw your view. It will automatically prevent any output to any place of your DC outside this rectangle.
To set clipping rectangle you can use
void CWnd::InvalidateRect( LPCRECT lpRect, BOOL bErase = TRUE );
If you want to get this rectangle from OnPaint, use
CPaintDC dc( this );
CRect rectUpdate;
dc.GetClipBox(&rectUpdate);

If you want some more serious clipping you can use CDC::SelectClipRgn. You should also look for CRgn.
