The older 20" and/or newer 21.5" iMac's do not support input, so you can not use a conventional display adapter or cable connection.
You can however use > ScreenRecycler
To transfer data between the two iMac's, you can use a Network connection although a FireWire connection is a lot faster.

So if I buy the screen recyler I can use my old imac as a second montitor through wifi? Would I just connect the firewire from my old computer to my new computer or through a router? Thanks!

Sorry for any misunderstanding, but what I'm suggesting are two different things.
First I would use the FireWire connection to move everything over to the newer computer and then use ScreenRecycler so that I could use the older iMac as a second display.
