I'll assume you mean folders in IMP.
The other way around (A contains B, B contains C, move C to A) works
for me by simply dragging C to A.

Changing the top-level folder will probably always be a problem,
because of restrictions of your back-end (i.e. Cyrus won't allow you
to remove the top-level folder, AKA inbox).

Mark 'em all, by clicking the selection check box above the ones for
the individual messages, then drag.
Again, moving the top-level folder is a special case - for all others,
I was able to drag them around at will.
