How to transfer all data and apps from my iMac Intel core 2

Hello Friends from C/Net Forum. Looking to see if there is a posibility...
My question is, How to transfer all data and apps from my Old iMac Intel core 2 duo to another Old iMac Intel core 2 duo with the same caracteristics... The problem is, the display of the old machine is not working any more, so I can not see (or Click) on anything???

Would I be able to do the migration from the new iMac??? without the need of doing some clicking arround in the old one?

Hope you undestand my question.

Best regards,
