Hi Experts,
Is is possible to move contact(s) from one container to another in the same site without recreating them?

No it is not.
Possibly you could export the custom recipients (contacts) to a CSV file using Directory Export.
Then modify the CSV file so that the proper container is used.
Delete the original contact and allow directory replication to happen.
Then using directory import you would import in the modified CSV file.

If you are not very familiar with this process you could create major problems.
