Now I put the card into the Pinebook and that thing boots into a nice Linux KDE Desktop.
Now, how do I move that image to the eMMC?
Bear in mind, the eMMC is empty and unformatted, I only have the KDE on the micro SD....

Everything you need is in the wiki - NOOB section. But I'll make it easy for you: option 1) download the image you want to your installation running from SD. DD the downloaded image  to the eMMC from within the environment on SD as you would on any other computer to any other media; option 2) use FEL SD card OR open up the Pinebook and use the FEL button + A-to-A cable.

Been there. Downloaded image and etched.
a) KDE Neon image doesn't show up as microSD to eMMC - which is akward.
b) No other cables or adapters available
c) sudo ./Pine64_install_to_eMMC.sh won't work as I only have an 8GB microSD at hand

I am not sure you understood me, read the Flashing to eMMC from a SD Boot (Allwinner A64 Devices) in NOOB section.
On the latest KDE image /usr/local/sbin is empty. No script there. No way to do a pine64_install_to_eMMC
