Does anyone know how to recreate the functionality of the "SendTo another location" option in SharePoint?

It looks like CopyTo only allows to copy documents within the same site.

If possible I would also like to keep the link between the files as the Send To functionality does.

You can write a workflow along with the custom activities add-on which is available free at code plex. That will help you to move/copy the items cross the sites.
