I mean...I launched my old library (from my 2009 Macbook - not a pro) and now can't find my new library (from my less-than-a-year-old Macbook pro, where I'd like both libraries to be).

Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library'
If you have Aperture 3.3 or later and iPhoto 9.3 or later you can merge libraries with Aperture.
Otherwise the only way to merge Libraries is with the paid ($20) version of iPhoto Library Manager

That worked, thank you (I don't know why I didn't know that, actually)!
I'm thinking the only way to get my photos from both libraries onto my iPad is to manually move them to my desktop or a USB from one library and then just drag them into the other after switching, and then sync the iPad, right?
I refuse to accept that I can't have all my photos from both computers accessible on my iPad, and that if I want them I have to pay. I'll do it by hand if I have to...

The options for merging libraries are above.
If you want just move photos, then export from one and import to the other.

Just moving photos is fine. I don't have the right version of iPhoto or Aperture but I won't pay...so I'll make do with importing/exporting or moving photos.
