Hi, I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. But I had an occasion where I had to merge two columns in the footer and I did as the following.
===========================================================
(1) In your ItemDataBound method,             
  if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Footer)
  {
     e.Item.Cells[0].Text = "Merge Col1 and col2";
     e.Item.Cells[0].Attributes.Add("colspan","2");
     e.Item.Cells[1].Visible = false;
   }
============================================================
(2) to display the columns title in multiple line
In your ItemDataBound method,             
  if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Header)
  {
     e.Item.Cells[0].Text = "line1<br>line2";
   }
