You cannot transfer from Dropbox to iCloud Files on iOS, but you can Copy. Open the Files app, click on Dropbox location, click select at the top-right, check the folder/files, click Move at bottom, choose Dropbox, and Copy.

You need the newest versions of iOS installed to get the 'Files' app

This is all done within the iOS Files app. You must of iOS v11 or greater. “How does one get this iOS files App? I don’t think it’s part of standard OSX 12 .x app on iPad. Where did you get your iOS Files app mate ? My OSX is very current 12.2.

It does come with standard iOS out of the box. You can reinstall it from the App Store if it has been deleted.
