I have a btc backup wallet.dat file. I dumped the file with pywallet.py using python. I now have the wallet.txt showing all my addresses (Legacy) with their private keys in that wallet. So there are multiple addresses each with amounts of btc in them. Can i sweep or send btc from the addresses individually to another address/wallet like electrum? And will the rest if the addresses still be in my wallet then with their btc balances? How do i do this exactly?

Yes, but you sweep the private keys not the addresses.
How do i do this exactly?
By following published guidance, such as that given on the Electrum unofficial guide:
- To sweep your private keys you go to Wallet menu > Private keys > Sweep:
- Then you enter your private keys one per line:
- Your private keys need to be in Wallet Import Format (WIF) or mini private key format. These are standard formats for private keys.
