May I ask why you wish to duplicate it?
In general duplication of data is not a good thing for relational databases, perhaps you can just add a qualifier in the existing module. For example, if you have different types of contacts then you can add a contact type.
If you then need to restrict who see what types you can use Teams for that, or if you need to go more granular, use Angel Magaña's Dynamic Views solution (v.7.x) which allow you to have completely independent views with select fields/buttons based on some criteria on the User's record (you can use title or role or some custom field to determine what they see).
If you are adamant about duplication, one way is to use module builder and choose the "person" template to build the copy of the contact module, for example, and then add the fields you need/remove the ones you don't.
For more on module builder you can start here:
I suppose there is a way to copy a module in code, but, off the top of my head, it would not be a simple approach as you would have to rename all the relationships and class references...
In bocca al lupo.
