I bought a large aviary for my zebra finches. I have one couple with babies that are close to 2 weeks old and another couple that are sitting on eggs. Can I move these couples to their new aviary, they are in smaller cages right now, or should I wait until babies are out of the nest?

Definitely wait. If you move them now, the parents may freak out and stop caring for them.

I have 2 finches and she has laid a clutch of 7. I was not expecting this and this clutch was laid in a very small hut. I (have) want to put the babies and eggs (whole nest) in a bigger hut (house). Should I not touch the nest? If I do will she not feed them and not hatch the remaining eggs? What will happen if I change this?

Definitely wait, the parents will more than likely stop caring for the babies
