Hi,

what version of AEM are you using? Please review the documentation below. Moving Tags should be available, but as mentioned by edubey not recommended in the documentation. 

When a Tag is moved, all the references that point to the old tag are not changed, however there is an internal reference kept to the old tag. So this is resolved by the TagManager when the tag is called/used. By changing the title, as suggested in the documentation, no reference needs to be kept, hence cleaner. I have seen developers move a tag and then by not using the TagManager to resolve a tag, they get the old title value. So be careful and understand what happens when moving a Tag.

Its not a recommended practice to move tags.
You can drag and drop tags to move from left menu.

This is a bug in the code and you can reach out to Adobe daycare and raise a ticket. This has been fixed in the latest version of AEM - 6.1. However, you should be able to drag and drop the tags in the tag admin tree to move them.
