You could save those emails into separate PST files and then import these PST's on your new machine.

To add to the above, Outlook 2010 makes a new profile for every new account. So on the new machine, set up Outlook, do not use the wizard, but set the account up where you want before importing the email.  If you copy the PST file to the location you set up, you can also just open it.

Another thought to build on my suggestion above is to copy the PST file to:
C:\Users\username\Documents\Outlook Files

Then when you create the account manually and use the option in account creation to set up the data file location, point to: C:\Users\username\Documents\Outlook Files and it should just open the file.
