How to set which page a post is put on?

Right now, all posts are being placed on the baseURL page for the blog.

How can I set posts to be shown on a page other than the baseURL page?

Do you want a second blog at another location or do you want to move your blog to another location?

An example would make things clearer...

I don't want another blog, nor do I want to move my blog to another location. Each blog can have posts and pages. But all the posts for a blog end up on the default/base URL for that blog. What I want is to be able to make a new post and have it end up on any chosen page in that blog.

IOW:
Blog1 has multiple pages but only one post. The one and only post in blog1 is the content for the home page of the website. The pages of blog1 make up the bulk of our website.

Blog2--a photo blog, which for reasons not necessary to discuss is actually blog4--has only one page, and on that page there are multiple photo posts.

Users navigate between the two blogs seamlessly via linked pages, without ever knowing their visiting two different blogs.

What I want to do is create a *second* page for blog2 and be able to create posts for that page. Thus, posts in blog2 could be assigned to the intropage of blog2 or to the newly created second page.

Thus far, the only solution I can find is to create another photoblog and make posts to it. And then link between the three blogs via linked pages. This method would lead me to another question: is it possible to make a copy of a blog? I've made several backend edits that I'd really rather not have to re-create.

TIA!

Sorry you did not provide an easy to grasp example and I don't really understand what you're trying to do.

One question I can answer though: there is no function to duplicate a blog. You need to copy the settings, for example by opening 2 browsers windows side by side.

Well, there is actually a quite nice "Blog Settings Duplicator" plugin for that : http://forums.b2evolution.net/topic-21895

In fact, the plugin only duplicates skin and plugins settings for the blog. It can be extended to also copy regular blog settings, of course.

However I believe this must be added to the core, a duplicate function for posts, categories and blogs.

In a blog, is it possible to have posts shown on any other page than the main page?

I didnt quite get what you are trying to achieve but the answer may be in "crossposting" and "aggregated blog".Crossposting will allow you to post in multiple blogs, thus appearing in multiple places (you need to activate it in settings).
An aggregated blog will put together posts from blogs you select, or all blogs.

Those aren't it either. I don't want crossposting between blogs, or to aggregate posts from multiple blogs.

I want ONE blog, multiple pages in that blog, and posts on any chosen page of those pages.

You are talking about categories. Assign posts to different categories and create an intro post for each category.
That's exactly what you described.
