You can copy files over , then chown -R
Midnight Commander will offer visual interface.

Assuming user 'fred' has a bunch of stuff and you want to give it all to his manager 'bill'


find / -user fred -exec chown bill {} \;

fred would then be left with nothing - and may not even be able to login any more!


Cheers
