Imported all the photos (from multiple cameras & events) to Lightroom Classic by default (by date). Now need to move certain photos based on metadatea (filter by camera model)  on external hard drive or folder. Is there any way to move ?

There’s no built-in way to filter and move in just one step, but with the instructions in johnrellis’s reply you can do it in two manual steps: Filter, then manually drag the results of the filter to the other volume or folder.

 

You can do the metadata filtering with the filter bar in the Library panel, or with a Smart Collection.
