You need to configure a uitable CellSelectionCallback . When the callback fires, the second parameter will be a structure that contains the indices of the cells that are selected. You do not need to act on the information immediately, but you might need to record it for later use.
To get the selected cells after that requires using Java methods that are undocumented by Mathworks and which are being changed. You can find those described at

Try something like this (untested)
% Read both tables
data1 = handles.uitable1.Data;
data2 = handles.uitable2.Data;
% Transfer over data from 1 to 2
data2(row1:row2, col1:col2) = data1(row1:row2, col1:col2);
% Send updated variable back to table 2
handles.uitable2.Data = data2;
