Default Cloning device from old to new? Possible?

Is there a way to just make a TWRP backup on my old phone with a broken screen, load it onto the new phone and do a restore?
New phone is unlocked with latest twrp flashed.

This would save me a lot of headache!

Explain further? I have no OS currently, will the TWRP include the Rom, or do i need to install the current rom on my old phone first?

What he is saying, is that if the versions of OS and firmware is exactly the same on both phones, compare fastboot getvar all, then a TWRP nandroid backup from the working phone could be copied (adb sideload) to the other phone and restored from TWRP .
