If you have 3.5 you can use SVMotion. If not, you can cold migrate the VM to the other LUN. During the migration, it will ask you if you want to move the files. Use the VIC and right-click on the VM; use the Migrate option.

Yes you can, You can cold migrate your vm by shutting down the VM. Right click on the VM and click on Migrate. Follow the Wizard till it asks you which Lun to move it to. Choose the LUN and your all done.
