This is what you need to do
1.Remove the add-on domain from the current account.
2.Create a new cPanel account ( to be used for the add-on domain that you want to  move).
3.Copy all files from the old account folder  to’ public_html’ folder in the new account.
4.Export databases and then re-import them.
5.Reconnect to the new database names by reconfiguring your scripts
