Devices can only sync with one library at a time. If you plug it into a different library it asks if you want to sync with that library from now on.
There is no easy way to merge libraries:
Combining libraries by exporting as .xml playlist from one library and then importing playlist in another library.

similar process at:
By merge libraries I assume you mean keep all things such as playlists, ratings, playcount, date added, etc. If all you want to do is add content from one to the other, go to the iTunes Media folder, copy the files there to a flash drive, drag the files from the flash drive to the library window of the other iTunes. You will of course have to add them to playlists, etc.
