Are you sure that's what you want to do?  Pampas grass is very invasive, 
So you may end up with the plant in places where you never intended it
to grow. However, if you have your heart set on transplanting it, all you have to do 
is dig up the clump and put it down in the hole where you want it.
Be sure to water it after tranplanting. I usually don't cut back the foliage before transplanting
but you may want to cut it back about to about 3 feet high.
If you don't want it to spread you may consider moving it to 
a large planter (at least 20 gal. size).
