I needed to experiment with migrating my team project to a different TFS server. I copied my project to another root, loaded in vs2010, added to Source Control and checked everything in. I completed the TFS migration and now I am ready to incorporate the changes that were done in the meantime on the original project, which may be substantial. What is the best, safest and quickest way to do that? Any sound advice is appreciated.

Thank you for your post.
Two things to confirm with you:
1. You want to migrate one TFS intance to another TFS instance, or just move source code under on TFS to another TFS.
2. By "incorporate the changes that were done in the meantime on the original project', do you mean both TFS is online, after you move the source code, team member still check in new changes to the original TFS, you want to update the changes in second TFS too.
If you want to the second TFS could update source code changes from the original TFS automatiaclly, you can use EventSevice to monitor check in event, then download the check in files. In second TFS check out files, then overwrite the files, at last check in the files. About EventService, you can refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc507647.aspx
