What methods exist to merge at least two WordPress sites together that already live under one Multi Site instance? E.g. Sites wp_2 and wp_3 become either wp_4 or are merged together under wp_2.

I suspect that this is no different than migrating or converting an existing WordPress site/data into a Network that has been outline here and includes all the caveats of 301 mappings, updating site options, and existing URLS found inside options and content.

Easiest way would be to just export the one WordPress site, and then import it into the new site. Don't try to get too complicated with this.

Have you imported two sites into one before? – Jonnybojangles Feb 28 '12 at 0:49
You can run the import multiple times, some manual cleanup afterwards is inevitable and unavoidable regardless of which approach you take – Tom J Nowell Oct 2 '12 at 9:09
