Not sure what you mean but you could open one folder and copy the content then paste to the other folder. You could also open one folder then drag and drop the other folder to it. Whatever you try make backups first just in case.

I am looking for an easier way like "move" in the context menu.

If it's copy or move the folders to another without opening the target folder you seek, How To Geeks offers registry hacks which add these to the right click menu in XP, Vista and Windows 7.

I've used these changes to registry for Windows 7 without any problem although it's still advisable to back your registry just in case.

I have all of those. I want to merge one folder into another.

EARLR - unless you mean you want to join videos together then rdave13's method is almost certainly the easiest. Highlight the folder or files you want to copy or move (safer to copy then delete), ctrl-c for copy, open the destination folder or go across to an already open destination window and ctrl-v paste.
