Maybe should should explain more. Or do you want us to suggest a more difficult way of doing it?

Thats what the link I posted tells you how to do. The posts are in the database

if you mean to add posts from one board to a different board already installed etc. then no you really can't do that.
the posts are in the database but they are part of a lot of different tables in the database. they each have a ID number that is related to the topic they are in and to the forum they are in and to the author of the post, etc. etc. etc.
the board you are moving them to may have those ID numbers for the category, forum, topic, author, etc. already in use.

while anything is possible, it is usually not worth all the trouble of trying to merge all of that.

maybe if you explained why you want to do this and what your end goal is, we could help you figure out how to accomplish the end goal in a different way from what you think it should be done.

I have a problem with the database, the site, that some of the database settings have been deleted [while the site is migrating], so I'm considering moving the messages to a new database.
The messages themselves are intact.

Options are missing there

This is just an example of a response when you try to permanently remove a message
