You are correct, migrating virtual machines between volumes on the same aggregate will not yeild any performance benefit. There are some cases where it might (using LUNs, where queue depth might be an issue), but this doesn't appear to be one of those.
What type of performance issues? Are the disks SATA/NL-SAS?
