Let's use the car and parking space analogy.
The car is copied to the new parking space (can take a while)
Then forget the car was ever in the old parking space. The original car remains in the old parking space..
A move is a copy-delete. and only the pointer to the original file is deleted, not the original file.

The file is copied to the new location. The pointer is updated/replaced to point to the new location. Original file remains.
Depending on the file system the pointer may be deleted and a new one created, or the original pointer will be updated.

Not like moving a car to a new parking space.

My design using the distros as the only input from your request:

sda - grub in MBR listing all OS'es
| - - - elementary w/home - - - | - - - Debian w/home - - - | - - - Main share- - - - - - - - - |

sdb - grub in MBR listing all OS'es
| - Swap - | - - - Test  w/home - - - | - - - - - Secondary Share - - - - - |

sdb could be totally wiped with no loss of important data.
peace out.

Okay, one last time  big_smile

grub in MBR listing all OS'es
| - - - elementary - - - | - - - Debian w/home - - - | - - - elementary /home - - - - - - - - - |
           ^---------------------------------------------------------------^

grub in MBR listing all OS'es
| - Swap - | - - - Test  w/home - - - | - - - - - Share - - - - - |

The beginning of the drive is the fastest. Put Os'es and Swap there.
Use gparted to set it all up and lable each partition,
and make the installs go faster/smoother
