I want to add an SSD as a new cache pool for my VMs to take advantage of the multiple cache pools feature. What is the best method for moving my vdisks over to the new VM cache pool?

Depends on your experience level. The main thing to keep in mind is vdisks are created by default as sparse, so whichever method you land on needs to take that into consideration. Also, if the paths in your XML definition files are referencing /mnt/cache instead of /mnt/user, those paths will have to be changed as well.

Can I copy the domains folder over with cp --sparse=always in that case?

yep. just make sure not to use /mnt/user paths in the cp command. only /mnt/cache and /mnt/newpoolname
