While they can transplant fairly easy, make sure it is done while dormant and get as much of the root system as possible. This article should also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/growing-hydrangeas-hydrangea-care-guide.htm

Typically, pruning it back does help when transplanting but if you are planning on moving it during fall, I would not take off too much, as the shrub may need its foliage for additional protection in winter (if you're in a colder climate).
