Photoshop and Lightroom work on entirely different principles.

Photoshop is a pixel editor, it works directly on the image pixels and alter them as needed.

Lightroom is a parametric editor, leaving the original image pixels unaltered, but storing all edits as a list of text instructions.

 

There is a bit of functional overlap, where Photoshop "borrows" parametric techniques. The most commonly used is adjustment layers. If you use that instead of direct pixel adjustments, you can simply drag an adjustment layer from one file to another.

 

If you do that, pay attention to two things: One, the layer mask (if any). Two, the color spaces of the two files (sRGB, Adobe RGB etc). They need to be the same, or the adjustment will have a different meaning in the target file and the appearance change.
