Is there a way to import a playlist from one iTunes library to another (on different computer?)

I also want to copy the music, not just the playlist metadata.

The problem is my main computer has a HUGE library on it.

I want to make a smaller library on my Air that syncs with iCloud Music Library/Apple Music.

Yes
You can select all the songs in a playlist, and then drag them over to a folder in the Finder.
That'll copy the files.
Then copy the files over to your Air and drag into an empty playlist.

Ah, funny that I never knew that; thanks!

It still boggles my mind that you can't hard sync a playlist from iTunes to iPhone now, iCloud library or not. Sigh.
