first, the exports are pretty easy. use LDIFDE

i would use dsadd to import new users to other domain. i did this and just used excel to concatenate the data into the correct format

dsadd contact "CN=Bill Gates,OU=OU1,DC=experts,DC=exchange,DC=com" -fn Bill -ln Gates -display "Bill Gates - MS" -email bgates@microsoft.com
