Merging B.net accounts only occurred when they made the switch over to Battle.net. Currently there's no way to merge two separate B.net accounts.

You can, however, add a WoW license into your B.net account, but only if you are related to the other account holder IIRC. A married couple can link accounts, as can a parent and child. I think you'd need to prove that you are related somehow, though.

I've never tried to add someone else's WoW license to my B.net before, so perhaps someone with more experience in this area will stop by and give you more details.

I tried to add my brother's account to my battle.net. His last name is different than mine. And we were unable to do so even tho we called and verified everything and whatnot. This was a while ago and I think the person on the phone almost did it for us, but in the end was a no go.

Yeah I did some reading and found that it can only be done with accounts that have not yet merged to a battle.net account (pre-cata). Bummer as this person had both mini tyrael AND murky >.>. Apparently once an account has been added to a battle.net its achvs, mounts and pets are bound to that .net account.
