Assuming that both machines are Windows machines, all you should need to do is to copy all of your .a2w files from the old machine to the new machine, using some sort of intermediate storage medium such as a CD, a floppy disk, a USB memory stick, etc. (The same is probably true for other operating systems, but since I have no experience with them, I won't comment on them.) If you have created any image files or sound files to use with Alice, you will need to transfer them also. This should take care of all of your Alice data.

Fortunately, you can also transfer the Alice software to the new machine by doing a copy from the old machine to the new machine. Somewhere on you old computer there is a folder, (probably named Alice) containing the following items and possibly other items as well:

Required (folder)
Alice.exe (file)
SlowAndSteadyAlice.exe (file)

Just copy the top-level folder and its contents intact onto your new computer.

Another possibility, depending on the speed and quality of your internet service, is to download the Alice program from the Alice website and install it on your new computer.

Good luck.
