you have to attach the "old" .mdf with another name, and perform the necessary insert/update/delete statements based on the design.

you can insert from 1 database to another like this:

insert into new_db.dbo.tablename ( <field list> )
  select <field list> from old_db.dbo.tablename

similary you can update and delete cross databases...
