I've started playing League of Legends on American server but my latency is usually around 300 and I experience a lot of lag/delay.

Then I found out there are also European servers so my question is: is there a way to play on European servers with my client version and, if yes, can I play there using my old account?

Unfortunately the answer is NO, the servers have a different database for user accounts, additionally the two servers use two different clients.

If you want to play on the European server, you will have to download the LOL Client and choose Europe and create a new account.

EDIT: If you were asking for the existance of an Account Transfer between servers, this feature has been discussed a lot on the official forums but there has not bean a RED response on any of them.

It's worth noting that you can switch servers with the same launcher with a config change. There are a few applications available to make this easier (e.g. eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=97733). Regardless, you'll still need an account on the other server if you plan on switching. –  James Burgess May 21 '11 at 9:24
As a (new) note on this for people who are looking for it: Riot is making plans for it, although it's currently unknown how long it'll take or how much it'll cost... –  Joetjah Jun 10 '11 at 14:16
