There are few tools too but they are bit expensive.. However, if it is just a one time task, than you can use Quest Demo Version.:

I do this kind of work alot and i always use LDIFDE, if you for example want to export groups you can run the following command:

ldifde -f ExportedGroups -s "Name of a DC" -d "OU=YourOU,DC=YourDomain,DC=com" -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=group)(objectClass=Group))" -l displayname,samaccountname,description

After this you can import the list to a requested ou. but you will need to edit the file first, before importing.
One thing you need to change is: Which OU you want to import this to.

After this u can run the following command:

-i -f "Path of your ldfide file" -s "Name of domain controller in the new domain / existing domain" -j c:
