Your question is difficult to understand. Still I take a shot at it.
Your problem is the server you want to run Moodle is already full with some other data. For the database, you have to import another whole load of data. Aparantly that database is on a different machine.
The question is whether you can "link" the two machines.
First check whether this simple solution works. You know that a database is a _server_. That means, programs on other machines can talk to the database through the network. So how about
- create the Moodle database too on the database machine
- install the Moodle PHP-scrips and $moodledata on the first machine
- tell the first machine that the database is in the second machine.
Could this be the answer? If yes, people can explain in more detail how to achive this.
Hardware and performance
Storage sapce requirement
