It is not possible to "move" - you must unset the item and add new to your structure in the Admin Bar. See the link from the answer on Rays comment.

Unset

Here's an example of how to unset the comments link if the default status is 'closed' (offers 2 different approaches).

/**
 * Disable 'Comments' link if default status is _closed_
 */
function remove_comments() 
{
    $default_comment_status = get_option( 'default_comment_status' );

    if ( $default_comment_status == 'closed' ) 
    {
        remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_comments_menu', 50 );

        // optional solution using the WP_Admin_Bar class from /wp-includes/class-wp-admin-bar.php
        # global $wp_admin_bar;
        # $wp_admin_bar->remove_menu( 'comments' );
    }
    else 
    {
        return;
    }
}
add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'remove_comments', 0 );

You can use remove_action calls for any of the following (/wp-includes/class.admin-bar.php - line 182 - 192) to unset the menu items:

function remove_all_admin_bar_items() 
{
    remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_my_account_menu', 10 );
    remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_my_sites_menu', 20 );
    remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_edit_menu', 30 );
    remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_shortlink_menu', 80 );
    remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_updates_menu', 70 );

    if ( !is_network_admin() && !is_user_admin() ) {
        remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_new_content_menu', 40 );
        remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_comments_menu', 50 );
        remove_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_appearance_menu', 60 );
    }
}
add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'remove_all_admin_bar_items', 0 );

Set and re-order

Add the following calls to your functions.php file after unsetting the items. The integer at the end of every add_action call is the new "order".

function reorder_admin_bar_items()
{
    add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_my_account_menu', 100 );
    add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_my_sites_menu', 10 );
    add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_edit_menu', 40 );
    add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_shortlink_menu', 20 );
    add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_updates_menu', 50 );

    if ( !is_network_admin() && !is_user_admin() ) {
        add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_new_content_menu', 80 );
        add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_comments_menu', 170 );
        add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'wp_admin_bar_appearance_menu', 40 );
    }
}
add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'reorder_admin_bar_items', 20 );

Add a single item & sub menu item

You can also use the add_admin_bar_menus hook to add items to your admin bar.

function parent_menu_item() 
    {
        global $wp_admin_bar;

        // Parent
        $wp_admin_bar->add_menu( 
            array( 
                 'id'       => 'parent_id_name'
                ,'title'    => __( 'Parent Title', 'your_textdomain' )
                ,'href'     => '#'
            ) 
        );
            // Link to dev mode admin page
            $wp_admin_bar->add_menu( 
                array( 
                     'parent'   => 'parent_id_name'
                    ,'id'           => 'child_id_name'
                    ,'title'    => __( 'Child title', 'your_textdomain' )
                    ,'href'     => '#'
                ) 
            );
    }
    add_action( 'add_admin_bar_menus', 'parent_menu_item', 10 );

I can't think of how to make this guide more complete, but anybody can feel free to edit my answer and add everything that could be useful.
