Alternatively, modify your $WikiLibDirs to contain both. Something
like this (untested):

$OldWikiDir = new PageStore('/path/to/pm2/site-existing/wiki.d/{$FullName}');
$WikiLibDirs = array_splice($WikiLibDirs, 1, 0, $OldWikiDir);

Then (assuming you've got the default to look for a page in
/pm1/site-new) accessing a page will first look for it there, then in
/pm2/site-existing. The first one where it's found is presented. If
you edit a page that's only in /pm2/site-existing, it'll get copied
and saved to /pm1/site-new completely transparently.

Eventually you'll need to figure out (outside of PmWiki) if you have
any more pages left in /pm2 that haven't been updated, and handle
those so that you can remove the above two lines from your config.
