I am not an expert on merge. Many years, and FTM releases ago, I merged a small file into my main FTM file and had a lot of problems. Since then I have used merged specific individuals but never a file merge.

If you do merge I would be concerned with how FTM will match up the people who are missing first names, dates, etc. Whatever you do make sure you have good backups of both files before you try anything.
