I'm well aware of transferring DSiWare from a DSi to a 3DS, but does the same apply to a 3DS to another 3DS? Or did Nintendo screw users over (again) with their BS?

Yes, there is an option like that in the Settings.

If you mean DSiWare, probably, but I don't think you can transfer VC or 3D Classics.

So I couldn't transfer Link's Awakening or say Ice Climbers?

I don't think you can, no. I could be wrong, after all, I'm not Nintendo, and neither is GameFAQs, if you know what I mean.

Nintendo always has to screw up something.

Not really. You were never able to with the Wii, or the DSi.

right now it's not possible, in a future update they will add it.
but you probably have to transfer everything at once: all games, internet settings, friendslist, FC, street/spotpass data.

they already reserved some space for this in settings, but the button is just a placeholder right now and only returns a "not yet available" error.

Don't you think I know that? Thus the phrase "always has to screw up something"

It amazes me how some fans will moan about digital distribution practices of other companies but condone Nintendo's. They practically don't want you to own anything digital.

But by judging by your username, you seem to enjoy it.
