active directory >> Migrating users from one Forest/Domain to another Forest/Domain

I would like to migrate existing users/groups in a different forest/domain
(Small around 25 user accounts) to our forest/domain. How can I go about
doing this? As, I am planning to introduce the new DC and thought of demoting
the existing DC and add that member server to the new domain. I know that
when I demote the DC it is going to remove the existing users and group, but
we have applications that use some of the users and group accounts in the
existing domain.

Your response would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance
