Not really. If you are talking about programs on Windows, well they are just too difficult to move without uninstalling and reinstalling. Program like Microsoft Office are so entrenched in the Registry and file system that you could not find all the necessary paths and files to relocate to the HDD and even if you did, some things would absolutely not work afterwards. Your best best bet is to uninstall the programs and reinstall them with the HDD as the installation destination. This will work for a lot of software, but do be aware that even if you choose the HDD drive location, many programs will still load a lot of files to the SSD since that is where your OS lives and those files need to be there. You won't be able to escape having your SSD be free of other files so keep an eye on the available space so you don't run into problems and performance issues as the SSD fills up.

it depends if they are just exe files, sure move them. but if they are larger programs like adobe or shit like that you need to unistall and reinstall. if they are apps bought/dl'ed through windows app store, go to the system, unistal apps, the new system win 10 style one. and right click and you can move some. programs with the move option available. keep software you use often on the ssd regardless of size.

OP isn't asking this for security reasons. OP is stating that the space available on the SSD was intended only for the OS and installed programs defaulted to the SSD because he did not change the installation drive/directory during installation. I suspect the SSD is small in capacity and therefore should not have anything else but the OS and necessary files on it. He wants to move to the HDD to keep his SSD from filling up and causing problems. I don't know what you're smoking but it must be something pretty potent.
