Assuming you're doing a standard farm setup, at the author/visitor-level
each wiki appears to be entirely independent -- i.e., it's not at
all obvious that the separate wikis are sharing a common engine.

As long as they are on the same server, it can be done from separate
server accounts.

It's not much work at all -- generally I would:

    install pmwiki
    copy the wiki.d/ directory
    copy any local/ files and cookbook recipes

See also Hagan's excellent advice about using BackupAndRestore.
