First, log in to your computer as the root user (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/11778.html).
Then open the home folder of the second account, and move the files you need into the home folder of the first account. Hold command when you drag the files so that you will move the files, and not copy them.

My favourite way to move files from Account A to Account B:
1) Log in to the A account.
2) Locate all the files you want to move. Move them to /Users/A/Public. Note: Don't move any System-created top-level folders, like Documents, Pictures, Music, Movies, etc. Just move their contents.
3) Log in to the B account.
4) Navigate with Finder to /Users/A/Public. Drag the files to the Desktop. This will make new copies of them that will have the correct permissions for User B.
5) Put the new copies of the files away in the appropriate places in B's home folder.
6) Delete the A user account if it is no longer needed.
Doing it this way will ensure that there are no permissions headaches with the files after they are moved.
Also, make sure that you BACK UP all of your data before starting.
