Not sure what issues you are getting from listed options.
Lets redo with copy/paste option:
I assume all groups and users are present in RPD A file to make sure security wise both A and B rpds are same. Considering they are; Can you do each catalog wise copy paste and with global consistency check?
Thanks for your note, Srini.
I have not checked the groups and users are consistent across Rpd A and Rpd B, but definitely will. Would you please describe how you would check that?
Here's the steps I'm following for the copy/paste:
1) Open Rpd A
2) Open Rpd B in separate instance of Bi Admin tool.
3) copy a single presentation catalog in Rpd B and attempt to paste into presentation layer of Rpd A.
I get this error: Unknown error.
Not sure how you are doing copy and paste.
can you confirm a particular Catalog's BMM model from rpd B is present in rpd A?
I'm doing copy-then-paste on Windows - so it's right clicking a catalog content and copying, then right clicking and pasting into the other repository. Admin tool does not seem to like it. Merge feature is typically how I'd bring this data together.
Yes, the necessary business model is present in the BMM of repo A to support the presentation catalogs of repo B.
Thanks again for considering and weighing in, Srini.

In the spirit of sharing (and hopefully progress), it looks as though -- in my situation -- it will be necessary to first equalize the rpd objects which are the same between repo A and repo B. Here's a post that I've found helpful.
Will update as more experience is available.
Have gotten traction on this issue, sharing in case others experience similar issues.
After equalizing the repository objects, I am able to copy presentation tables from repo B to a presentation catalog in repo A.
There were a couple issues that I needed to overcome:
1) equalizing is best practice to ensure that similarly named objects in BMM and physical layers have the same underlying upgrade ID -- so admin tool sees those as same object.
2) the copy of an entire presentation catalog was failing because there were elements (presentation columns) -- which had different logical sources. Those I am reconciling and recreating manually.
Thanks for weighing in and helping out.
