Can I retrospectively merge an old Git repo with a new one ?

I have just recently tried to change a Git project (ie repo) into a server. To get started with this, as it’s the first one I’ve done, I’m using the local protocol, ie the new repo is a file folder, cloned from the existing project using “clone into bare repo”.
I’ve then cloned that (ie checked out) into a new folder and it seems to have worked – files are as expected.

This project has a bit of history, but up to now I’ve just made copies of the whole project folder and copied that around to work on. I’d like now to point those existing copied projects at my new, cloned, bare repo version. Can I do that ? Or do I need to check-out/clone it and start again and manually merge existing files ?

In other words what I think I’d like to do is to take a project which has been stand-alone, ie it has nothing to point to a remote repository, and tell it that it should in fact have a remote repository reference, with which it can then be merged/synchronized (either way) ?

I hope that makes sense,
