Please clarify what you mean by "window". In Vim terminology a window is
a rectangular region which can display a buffer. Muliple windows create
a layout. See :h window.
in OS terminology a window is something with a [x] at the top right,
something you can resize, close, minimize, move to other deskopts etc.
thus something like gvim, firefox, open office, etc.

See comments about what narrow region plugin does (bottom)
Its a little bit confusing, so try again explaining what you mean by
(eg why disconnect if you want to merge later)
So please try again explaining your workflow, what you want to do.
What does emacs provide (just try it):
then any terminal:
emacsclient -c (new window)
emacsclient -c (new second window, but internal state is shared in
the daemon running)
Thus you have two separate OS windows which "merge" automatically -
as long as everything is running as same user on the same machine.
This feel like collaborative editing (eg titatnpad etherpad or
google document like) - but requires all emacs windows to run on the
same computer and as the same user (?)
For that reason I suggested looking at collaborative editing plugins
if they exist.
NrrwRgn (A Narrow Region Plugin)
This is a script emulates Emacs Narrowing feature, by opening a selected
range in a new scratch buffer.
In the scratch buffer simply save it and the changes will be copied
into the original file.
This is only a very simple help. You should probably read the help,
that is provided with the plugin. See :h NarrowRegion
Can "copying back to the original buffer" be called "merging"?
Depends on what you're looking for. I agree its useful.
Maybe try all of those solutions - to get a better understanding what
works and what not - and then come back and ask more specific questions.
