First I will talk about X and then move on to Y.

First I will talk about X and then move to Y.

What's the difference?

In an exact sense, not much, but the idiom is "move on", and when used for speaking or traveling, it means to move from one topic to another, or from one place to another.

To simply use "move to Y" would tend to indicate a physical move, which would sound strange when referring to speaking.
