I have an old copy of my database that has information that we need i  our new database. Is there a way to restore the old DB into the new DB, leaving the new data and only adding the missing data?

No, this functionality does not natively exist in SQL Server.  You'll have to add the logic to do it programatically.

Or you can use a tool like AdeptSQL Diff which will help you compare the two databases and automatically create insert statements to insert the old data into the new database.
