    AFAIK, such action isn't possible in Skype, and would also be against the rules of privacy, to copy the content of one Account to the other one!

    You simply could copy the Chat to a Textfile, Word or some like that and would have them at hand if needed. That's the way I use to keep copies of important content from Skype, and I also use multiple accounts in Skype.

    1.Sign in to Skype with your old account details.
    2.Click Contacts, then click Advanced > Backup Contacts to File.
    3.Navigate to where you want to save the file on your computer, then click Save.
    4.Click Skype > Sign out to sign out of your old account.
    5.Sign in to Skype with your new account details.
    6.Click Contacts, then click Advanced > Restore Contacts from File.
    7.Find the file that you saved on your computer, then click it and click Open. Your contacts will appear in your new account.
