I'm coming at this a bit late so I apologize if I've repeated anyone's point. For your purposes photogrammetry is probably your best option particularly for the lithics. Laser scanning works on bones and I used a NextEngine scanner for human proximal long bones, but I think someone has already mentioned that the laser doesn't capture the orbitals well and you might have difficulty with tooth enamel. The photogrammetry software requires a decently hefty laptop, but it's affordable and you'd be working with normal light rather than lasers. I don't know that this clears up your concerns about fusing scans though. If you are concerned you could do some error testing on that comparing landmarks obtained on the scans to landmarks obtained normally. I found the laser scans to be pretty decent, but I unfortunately cannot speak to photogrammetry as I've never personally tried it.
