Create an AMI with all the services, specifications and configurations. Share the AMI with the target account, look for your AMI in the target account and launch a new instance with that AMI.
Make sure the IP is not static otherwise you will face connectivity issues.

The documentation is pretty clear: https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/account-transfer-ec2-instance/

You can use AWS CLI to move EC2 Instances to another AWS account. The whole process is a little bit complicated and involves up to 16 steps if you want to clone security groups, tag the instances and delete temporary AMIs.

I wrote a blog explaining all these steps in detail at https://medium.com/@gmusumeci/how-to-move-an-ec2-instance-to-another-aws-account-e5a8f04cef21
