how to transfer data from my macbook to my imac using a IEEE1394 cable

Hello and welcome to the forum! :) Please provide more information about your computers, e.g. model years, type of ports available on each, what kind of data is being transferred, OS X installed, and the nature of your home network (which might be another way to transfer your data).

As to the hardware needed, if your laptop has a thunderbolt port (and I'm assuming you have an older iMac w/ a firewire port), then a cable adapter such as the one below could establish a wired connection - now you'll have to provide more information as asked above as to the best way to get your data from one machine to another?
