Nitrates are the end product of cycling.
As for moving plants, I wouldn't recommend it. Your fish are used to the plants they have and want the cover to feel safe. Unless you didn't want the plants in the tank, then it's better than the alternative in throwing them out. Adding new plants to the new tank would probably be easier as it won't damage the existing root structure that your plants have already established in the old tank. Plus. as Captain Crab said, plants will tend to rot, and plants such as crypts tend to lose stalks when you move them.
