Trying to merge PDF's from one size into another.

Is there any easy way to combine 2 8x11 pdf pages into one 11x17 pdf page? i cannot seem to find a way to "copy and paste" or any other sort of tool in adobe to be able to do this?

Depends is the answer, the content of the pdf file is important as much as what you define as easy...

Easiest is to use Illustrator, define you 11x17 page and open the 2 files separately and copy and paste the layers in your first document after group each contents (CTRL+A & CTRL+G), arrnage to fit.

if you don't have Illustrator you can try doing it in Adobe Acrobat, but you need to create a blank page first at 11x17 (create PDF from Word after setting page setup to required size) and then use the Advanced Editing (from the Tools menu)|Touch up OBJECT Tool to select all the items you need and copy/paste onto new pdf. Much more laborious than the Illustrator above as Adobe have not designed Acrobat to be a WYSIWYG tool...but workable if you don't have to do this on a constant basis
