How do I copy part of an existing schematic to a new schematic? And can I do this with part of a board layout?

"...How do I copy part of an existing schematic to a new schematic?..."
Method #1
1) Open two instances of the Schematic Capture Editor.
2) Load the first instance with the original schematic, highlight the section you want and copy to clipboard (Ctrl + C).
3) Bring up the second instance of the Schematic Capture Editor, left-click once into its design area and Paste (Ctrl+ V).
4) Close the original schematic without saving.
5) Save new schematic with different name.
Method 2
1) In windows file explorer, highlight old schematic filename, copy and paste.
2) Rename newly-created schematic file.
3) Edit new schematic file as desired.
4) Save.

"...And can I do this with part of a board layout?..."
I would recommend trying a modified version of Method 2 (see above) for this...
1) In windows file explorer, highlight old PCB filename, copy and paste.
2) Rename newly-created PCB file.
3) Open newly-renamed PCB file in PCB Layout Editor.
4) Select File, Renew Layout from Schematic, By Components... and choose the new schematic file.
5) Clean up new PCB.
6) Save.

You can copy library parts from one library to an other, but not from a sheet to a library since the parts are "embedded" into the sheet.
So you must first "release" them from sheet. You can do that by using an ULP which is included in eagle.
