Actually you could copy the entire GNUPGHOME to the respective Windows
directory.  The name of the lock files and some temporary files are
different but that does matter.  "gpg --version" (or "gpgconf
--list-dirs") shows you the standard home directory on Windows.

If you only want to copy some keys, you can use the same procedure you
would use between Unix boxes.

Kleopatra's card manager is pretty basics.  If you don't like it you can
use the one in gpa (which can optionally be installed), or just resort
to the command line.
