This issue has been solved. See solution.

VCS version is 5.1SP1

1. How do we PROMOTE a "local service group" to "global service group" using command line ?

eg. local service group = "nbu_group"

2. How do we DEMOTE a "global service group" to "local service group" using command line ?

Making a service group global, just populates the ClusterList attribute so you can just modify this attibute on both clusters, so supporting your clusters are called "prod" and "dr", then on BOTH clusters run:

To promote to a global service group

hagrp -modify nbu_group ClusterList  prod 0 dr 1

To demote:

hagrp -modify nbu_group ClusterList -delete prod
hagrp -modify nbu_group ClusterList -delete dr
