as @zeshanshani if you move the fields and keep the field keys and names the same then no coding changes should be needed. You start by creating an empty field group and then use the “move” option for each field you want to move. Then you need to go into the group you moved them to and clean things up. They could be in the wrong order and any conditional logic could be broken. If you have complex groups you will probably want to move a few at a time.
If you’ve already done the work and the field keys have changed, well then you have a problem. All of the field key references in the DB will be wrong. You will need to do a search and replace on the DB to change the “meta_value” from the old field key to the new field key. There is no easy way to do that.
