I can't seem to find any good info about this case.

I'm running OpenIndiana 151 and have some files on a ZFS folder (located
under /datapool/stuff).

I'm in the need to create a new ZFS folder (/datapool/temp) and move
some files from stuff.

What's the best way to move files between ZFS folders / Datasets ?

Unfortunately, at this time - only commands like "move"
or "rsync -avPHK --remove-source-files SRC/ DST/"
You should use Sun commands like cp, mv, cpio, arguably
Sun tar, to transfer files along with their non-POSIX
ACL lists if you really use those.

There were some hopes that dedup would speed up such
transfers between datasets (not really, unless you have
a good hardware config with LOTS of RAM and an L2ARC),
or a special zfs-move command would emerge to reassign
ownership of on-disk blocks from one dataset to another
quickly and space-sparingly, but such wishes were not
yet fulfilled...
