How easy that would be would depend on what browser you are using but it would have to be a manual copy of the folder and paste into the equivalent one.
You should know that for BEST performance you should clean out these folders regularly or your browsing experience and even your computer use in general will be less than optimal (slow). Cookies are renewed every visit to a website and you should learn to use other methods of returning to previously visited websites like Favorites/Bookmarks. If you organize Favorites/Bookmarks using folders and subfolders you can very easily find what you want (rather than a straight list 3 miles long). This is a much better practice than using History for this and you can easily delete sites and folders when they are no longer needed. For example, I might have a folder related to computer components and a subfolder for a future build I am planning so I can keep all related pages to this build. If I see a better product that is on sale for the next week, I might add it to the list or take off another that received a bad review. When I no longer need this subfolder, I can empty it or delete it. I set my browser to delete History and Cookies whenever I close my browser for better performance and better security. If you navigate off a site without logging off (something I never do) and go back through History, the matching cookie may let you (or someone else) get back in without entering the password. Now think about what might happen if that site was your bank account? Now most bank sites should have a limited time that this would work, but would you really want to take that chance? I recommend keeping the cookies and history clean, and setting cookies to empty when the browser is closed and keeping history for only 2 or 3 days should be enough for anyone to be able to go back to things they did not think they would need to save information on.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
