I want to populate a text field in Form B with the EntryID of the entry in Form A which matches my lookup field. How can I do this because with lookup we can only populate the fields of other form and not the advanced info like form ID, entry ID, user ID etc.

There are at least a couple of ways to solve it. One way is to create a hidden field in Form A for the entry ID and use this example to fill in the entry id. That way you can use the field as you wish.

Use a dynamic lookup field instead of a text field. Dynamic fields only store entry IDs.
