Is it possible for us to copy a file from an account to other account?

Eg :

If I have two accounts, named lorem.com and ipsum.com,
of course from cpanel page of lorem.com I can't transfer a file to ipsum.com.

Can I do the copy process using my WHM?

There is nothing in cPanel for copying files from one account to another. You can log into the server via SSH as root and copy the files using basic shell commands (cd and cp), but be sure to change the ownerships of the copies of the files in the new account. Alternatively, you can download the files using FTP for the "old" account, then upload the files using FTP to the "new" account, which will ensure correct ownerships automatically.
