Open Maya Help and search for Transfer Surface Information. Everything you need to know is in there.

If your problem is simply that the option is grayed out, make sure to load the plugin first (Window->Settings & Preferences->Plug-in Manager...->TransferSurfaceInfo.mll).

Once that's done, you need to select your high-poly object first, then the low-poly one. Make sure both objects have clean UV maps with no overlapping faces. That's about it. Other than that just make sure you understand what each of the options does, and tweak them until you get what you want.
