There may be a Tweak for that (It also assume that the destination Library has the same structure. There is an option When creating another Library to use the existing ones structure)
Check out this tweak in preferences: tweaks
Code:
# Control how tags are applied when copying books to another library

add_new_book_tags_when_importing_books = True

The only way a custom column will not transfer over is if the custom columns in the two libraries are different (either their names are different, i.e. the name that startswith # or their datatypes are different)
