I managed to do this on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 (Android 4.4.2) with Link2SD Plus, which requires a rooted device. Just press "Link to SD Card" and it should be able to move everything. Important: You need to set up your external storage with the appropriate partitions! Here's how to do that. (Click image to enlarge)

If they're non-DRM epub books, you could use a third party reader. Otherwise, it may depend on what version of Android you're running. Generally you're stuck with whatever options Google offers. With DRM (paid/protected) books you pretty much have to play by their rules as that's what stops people from say sharing books with those who haven't paid for them.

Put the epub on your device. Use a file manager such as Files to open it (with [Google] Play Books). It'll import it then. This was tested on Android 10 with the Files file manager (version 1.0.347928958) on a Vastking KingPad SA10 with an epub created with Calibre (3.21.0+dfsg-1build1) for Xubuntu 18.04.5 LTS, 64-bit, soon before I answered this question.
