Dreamhost help needed! Do I need to physically move files and databases from one subdomain to another at Dreamhost, and if so, how best to do it? All details inside.

Dear Dreamhost/Wordpress Mavens: I have (actually a client has) a Dreamhost Account and one domain registered and hosted with Dreamhost. I'll call that domain projectx.com. Wordpress has been installed, configured, designed for projectx.com on Dreamhost, and is working great.
On Godaddy we have a domain I'll call clientname.com. At the moment, clientname.com is just being forwarded to projectx.com.
I want to host clientname.com on this Dreamhost account (I know how to do that), but I want the content that is on projectx.com to be on clientname.com instead. (Or "also," but it seems that there is too much danger of search engine blacklisting with two domains featuring the same content.)
Is the only way to do this to physically move the files and the MySQL databases? Because I'm really, really worried about doing that. I'm not experienced in doing anything at all with MySQL, and it intimidates me!
(Another complication: projectx.com actually has two wordpress installations, one at projectx.com/home and one at projectx.com/blog.)
