I have one robot that has a working install of ROS kinetic on it, and one that doesn't. Both are not able to connect to the internet and are running Xenial. Is it possible to install kinetic on the second robot using the files from opt/ros/kinetic on the first robot? If not is my only option to apt-offline?.

You could download the packets you need from ros and with sudo apt-get download xxx or better with sudo apt-get install --download-only xxxx so you get the dependecys

And istall those with dpkg
