You must either:
- ask hoster of that domains (who hosts that domainnames and have it's own DNS)  to change IP addresses of hosts in that domain to your new VPS IP. It's OK if you have no DNS server.
OR
- ask registrar (I don't care which one is yours) of that domain names to change authoritive NS for that domains. You should have at least 2 independand DNS servers with full root access to them.

That's not that easy question. But it has simple answer:
1) Backup old sites
2) Restore on new server

If you have no shell access to old server, the only method to backup is to use FTP/SCP each site.
If you have SQL data, then it's frontend specific.
Also you must configure your new apache (without having original configuration I guess),  recreate  domains,
probably recreate database (also without having access to original configuration), then test new configuration.

It's possible, but not easy. Do you have some specific  problem when moving domains?
