Many thanks for your assistance.
I am on my way. Here's what I am doing:
pg_dump canon > canon.dump
psql -d musket -f canon.dump
I am on the 4th step. But I could achieve the same with:
pg_dump canon | psql -d musket -f -
can't I? Aside from styling, there is no functional difference
between two procedures, is there?

Yup, exactly. It would have created canon and restored into that.

Use pg_dump not pg_dumpall.
