Yes, you file articles of organization in your new state to create the new corporation. You then file a certificate of merger so that your new entity is the surviving corporation and will keep the old EIN. You shouldn't need to file a Form 2553 to elect S-corporation tax treatment since your other corporation merging into the new one has already made that election.
You will submit the articles and merger documents to the IRS with the first tax return for the new corporation in the new state.
This short article is actually pretty helpful. I think you should take a look at it.
I would highly recommend that you use an attorney. If you don't get it right it could be deemed a liquidation of your old corporation with severe tax consequences for you.
