Is there a way to transfer my number from another Koodo account?
Since Koodo states that I am not able to transfer number from Koodo, so what if I deactivate my old plan, will I be able to transfer my number to the new account?

So basically I want to move my number from an old plan to a new koodo plan which already has a new phone number.

You're going to have to port out to Koodo prepaid(easiest to port and port back right away) or something similar. Porting out your current number you want to keep to Koodo prepaid will cost you $20 to get a Koodo prepaid sim card. Then buy the minimum base plan for $15 minus a $5 activation credit. So it will cost you around $30 plus tax and the hassle. Follow the steps in the link below.

Once that is done you port your number into your new Koodo plan.

@liu650 : Hi
No, Koodo won't allow normal customers to transfer internally like that, unfortunately.
People often port the number to Koodo prepaid or other prepaid service and port back to Koodo (new account).

If you deactivate your plan, the number would be lost.

What exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to move your number to a friend's grandfathered plan?

Would updating the old plan to a new plan in self serve, and deleting the second line have the same effect?

no actually that was a promotional plan, and it was no long offered.
