    Are you asking if you can restore a Time Machine backup of your MacBook to an iMac? Yes, you can.
    Will it delete whatever is on your iMac? to do a restore, yes, it will wipe the iMac.

    Do you just want the same user on each machine? That you can do by running Migration Assistant from the iMac. which is in:
    /Applications/Utilities/

    feel free to provide more and specific details about what you have and want.

    I was thinking of cloning the macbook to imac so both same.

    Only apps that different is boom2 on the imac.

    oh and battery monitor software on macbook of course.

    But you answered my question thank you.

    forum search and google was too confusing so had to ask.
