I'd use the Botron project configurator to bring over the configuration for the projects, and once you have empty projects configured as per the source JIRA, use project-import to bring the issues in from an xml backup.
If you take a full backup of the JIRA instance of the source projects you want to copy you then can use the import tools to select only the projects you actually want to to copy.
