So how different are the servers?  Moving databases between similar servers 
can be as simple as
copying the database directories, and executing a CREATE DATABASE dbname 
command for each.
You will also need to GRANT access to various users as needed.  That is 
part of the mysql database
and the easiest way to merge them is by issuing the needed commands.
