Subba, I'd agree with Rebecca here.
What you're trying to do sounds a lot like a clone operation. To use the clone tool, select your "source" by holding Control, and clicking where to start copying from. Then release Control, and paint into the "destination". All of this uses the current brush shape do to the painting. If you really want to make a new brush (it doesn't sound like it from your description) you can always save as a .gpb (gimp pixmap brush) into your ~/.gimp-1.2/brushes directory, refresh the brushes, and select your new brush.
