You can:
# mMove a job from one installation of Jenkins to another by simply copying the corresponding job directory.
# mMake a copy of an existing job by making a clone of a job directory by a different name.
# rename an existing job by renaming a directory.
# Rename an existing job by renaming a directory. Note that the if you change a job name you will need to change any other job that tries to call the renamed job.

Those operations can be done even when Jenkins is running. For changes like these to take effect, you have to click "reload config" to force Jenkins to reload configuration from the disk.
