What happens when I copy an AWS EC2 Instance from one region to another?

What exactly gets transferred when I copy an AWS EC2 Instance from one region to another?

  1. Do all the packages installed using yum get transferred?
  2. Are all the core packages (with my added content – e.g. special settings in php.ini etc) get transferred?
  3. Are all the files getting transferred?
  4. Are all the DBs (assuming I have MySQL installed directly on the server and not on a separate RDS instance) get transferred?
