Profiles (User Accounts) on a computer once I change Servers.

Question - Local Machine (Windows 10) hooked to a Windows Server:
Is there a way to use the settings of an old profile (hooked to window server 2003) on a new profile (hooked to server 2012 R2) ?

Problem Defined
I had windows Server 2003 and just upgraded to Windows Server 2012 R2.  I had my buddy do it - I'm a programmer and know very little about these things.

I have 2 machines (both Windows 10) that I hook to the server, a desktop and a laptop.  I spent about 30 hours getting everything on my desktop machine to work like I wanted them to work, because the new profile did not have any of the setup information that I customized for my many many programs.
My buddy is coming back next week to hookup my laptop to the new network and I've documented most of it, but I would love to have the laptop know to use the setup stuff in the old profile.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if they were the same domain then there would have not been this problem.  You could have used the ADMT (Active Directory Migration tool) to migrate from one domain to another

"Welcome! The Windows Server Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) V3.2 is a free utility that allows you to migrate objects (users, computers, groups, etc.) from one Windows Server Active Directory domain/forest to another:
