If no rotational momentum is present as well, only a tiny fraction of which can be transferred to another billiard ball, the cue ball will stop. If rotational momentum is present, which is a part of cue ball control, the cue ball will roll in a direction dependent upon angle of contact and direction of rotation.

What would it take for earth to reverse its spin?

A great force would be required. - Among other things, there is a law of conservation of rotational momentum. This means that rotational momentum would have to be transferred somewhere else for this to happen.

Can momentum be transferred?

Yes. In the game of pool you do it to make your plays happen. When the que ball strikes another ball it imparts some to all of its energy onto the ball it hit. That ball travels off and the que ball can either finish rolling or having lost all its' forward momentum, stop.

Momentum = mass x velocity. So if the velocity is doubled, momentum will be doubled as they are directly proportional to each other.
