No, because that doesn't make sense in a word processor. The body text is broken into pages, and a page may start with the middle of a sentence (or the middle of a word, in case of hyphenation), and end likewise.

I just tried with Word, it doesn't allow that either.

What I wrote about importing single pages is just as true for breaking a document into single pages. It doesn't make sense in the framework of an ongoing stream of text. That's why word processors don't have such functions.

If a page contains not only text but also objects (text frames, picture frames, drawings, form objects), it is not possible to copy the whole content in one go. You need two actions:
1. In Edit mode, select all the text and copy it to a new page in the other document.
2. Then change to Object mode, select all the objects on the page and copy them to the same page. Done.
