You can certainly "merge" accounts, but getting the permissions right could be a little tricky, depending on what you're merging. Simple documents should be easy, applications or things with folder hierarchies (including "packages", used by some apps) could take a little doing.
A couple of alternatives to a straight "drag and drop"-style merge:
(1) If you still have the old Mac, use the Migration Assistant, either directly or by reinstalling the OS on the new Mac. You'd want to back up any "new" documents not on the old Mac first, probably to a CD/DVD or an external HD.
(2) Copy the documents from one account to the "Shared" user folder, then switch to the other account and drag them from the Shared folder. You may be asked for a password once or twice.
