Moin will also take up the role of team manager, while his fellow former Pakistan international Zaheer Abbas has been appointed as chief advisor to PCB chairman Najam Sethi.
The PCB announced the shake-up after the team failed to defend their Asia Cup title before making an early exit at the ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
Moin, 42, has vacated his role as head coach, while Abbas is expected to continue as batting consultant.
Former wicketkeeper-batsman Moin, who played 69 Tests and 219 one-day internationals, was appointed as chief selector last year but was prevented from taking up the job due to a court order.
A PCB statement read: "Given his vast experience Moin has now been given the responsibilities of chief selector and manager."
Moin added: "It is a big honour and a challenge. I will be under the spotlight.
"I will make sure there's no compromise on merit. I am thankful to the PCB for posing confidence in me."
PCB directors Intikhab Alam and Haroon Rasheed will join Moin on a three-man committee charged with appointing a new head coach and fielding coach.
Former fast bowler Waqar Younis is believed to be favourite to take over as head coach, with the final date for applications for the two vacancies set at May 5.
