Full import/export from database with different name

How do I make full import into a database using full export from a database with a different name?

The database name should not make any difference. To import the entire contents of the dump file, use the following command:
imp userid=system/manager file=my_dump.dmp full=y log=imp.log
The above assumes your environment is set up to connect to the database locally. If not a local database, then you can create a TNS alias pointing to the remote database with the Network Configuration Assistant (netca). Then in the USERID parameter, specify the value username/password@tns_alias to connect to the remote database.
