Easiest way is to either write them down and type them in or open 2 Chirp tabs, one from each radio, and copy and paste between the tabs.

I have read about exporting to CSV and importing and it seems a little confusing. Even if I were to do this, I have read nothing about having a choice of what memory slots the important frequencies would go into, or if I have a choice like I normally do when I'm programming.

By messing up I mean putting all the frequencies above the ones that are already in there and not at the end. He really needs these extra frequencies added to his current radios that I programmed for him. Yes, I did make an original image of both of his radios, and I do have the fully programmed images saved.
