How best to copy / import fields between databases?

Post

Hi,
I'm wondering what's the easiest way to copy / import certain fields from the sample database into my database.  (A user from another forum kindly uploaded a sample database that offers a great template for certain fields (e.g., email, phone numbers, files) : http://filemakertoday.com/com/showthread.php?t=21093&highlight=jprint714&page=2 
 
I am using FMP Advanced right now. Is there a benefit to copying v. importing tables & fields? Is one option easier or is there a better way to proceed? 

Also, if possible, I'd like change the function of the red X's next to individual fields. At present, they're set to delete the records, but I'd prefer if they clicked off unused fields. Anyway, I'd appreciate any advice you could offer. Thanks so much for all of your help!
