No. A player cannot be signed from one practice squad to another. A practice squad player from one squad can be signed to the ACTIVE roster of another squad easily, but they must remain on the new team's active roster (as long as they're healthy) for the remainder of the season
53 players can be on the active roster. The amount of players on IR and the Practice squad can vary from team to team
Each team may keep up to eight players on the practice squad.

Scout team. Dummy squad.
In the NFL, the teams are allowed to have 53 players on their roster. Of these 53 players, 45 are allowed to dress for a game. The players on the roster that don't dress for a game are considered to be on the 'practice squad'. Should a team decide to cut one of those players on the practice squad, it is called a 'practice squad deletion'. In the same vain, if a team picks up a player and adds him to the practice squad it is called a 'practice squad addition'.
Practice Squad players do not travel to away games with their respective teams. Practice squad players are not elligible to play in games until they are added to their team's 53 man roster, so it would be pointless to bring them on the road. Check the link below for the portion f the NFL CBA that covers the Practice Squad.
The practice squad consists of players that the team really likes but doesn't think are ready to play full time. These practice squad players are usually young, rookies and second year. Sometimes, should an injury occur to one of the regular players a player from the practice squad will be promoted to the regular squad to replace him.
Yes. The player's current team can promote him or another team can sign him to a contract. Practice squad members are considered free agents therefore, should another team sign one of the practice squad members, no compensation is given to the player's former team. Should another team sign a practice squad player, the player must be placed on his new team's 53 man roster for a minimum of three weeks. The 2008 season salary for practice squad members is $5,200 per week.
To try out for the practice squad, players cannot have more than one year of NFL experience. Playing on the practice squad for a total of three weeks counts as one season. A player can be on the practice squad for two seasons. The practice team is made up of players cut from the regular NFL active roster.
