We would like to have it so a team member can be in any channel of that team then @ mention another channel in the team and the text be moved to that channel instead of it being in the channel it was typed in. 

Example: User has a Important or Urgent message we would like the user to be able to @ mention the Urgent channel from General it when they post the message it moves that conversation to the urgent channel.

Mention serves just to bring attention to the message, it doesn't control where it's posted. You can use the cross-channel posting feature to add more than one channel, but other than that, what you are asking for is not possible.
