I don't think that is possible.

Not only do I agree with Attorney Rowe, it is up to the probation department of your county to decide whether to transfer your probation and it seems that, absent extraordinary circumstances a judge is not going to want to be involved in such a decision. Even if that would happen, how would that help your circumstance. You still have the neighbor who is causing you trouble
I've never heard of someone transferring probation to a county in which they do not reside and in which the offense wasn't committed. I don't know that it can't be done, I've just not seen it done before.
Regardless, I think your first step should be to speak with your neighbor's supervisor about your concerns. There is a chance that such a conversation will subject you to more of the same treatment you've been getting, but I'm not sure your transfer idea is going to fly.
