I copied the file onto the usb stuck it in the new computer and now I want to move it to my wallet, so what do I do with the original wallet? or do I have 2 wallets in the same folder?  Do I have to move the old one out first then move the new one in?  Thanks
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Basically, no, you can't have two wallet files in the same dir.
