you "simply" backup the databases on the source server, and restore them on the target server. the 32 vs 64 bit does not impact on the backup/restore functionality.

there are other things to check, see here:

yes, the restore is backwards compatible, sql 2005 backups can be restored on sql 2008 instances.
