I am not a sharepoint expert by any means, but all websites use a categorization system of some sort that divides the site in distinct areas.

1) I would choose one of the two sites to be the main site. Let's call it "Main". Let's call the other "second"
2) In the other site I would either extract the content using a database dump and then importing the DB into the main site
or
I would copy and paste from the Second site into the main site starting with the categories and then each article one by one.
Which method you use really depends on how many categories/articles you have. If you have up to 20/25 articles in total you need to move, then Copy/paste from second to main will be faster. More than that I would go with the database dump and import.
3) Even before you move your content, extract a site map from second site and make a note of all the links - you are going to need to create redirects for those links or you'll lose your rankings. You may want to consider a domain redirect, but at least you should redirect each link on second site to its new link on Main
4) In main site, after you have moved the content over you can define a separate area of the site to keep  the content from second. I am not sure about sharepoint, but in other systems you can actually go as far as using a different template layout for that area and even a different menu system.

regardless you need to make sure that your domain from second site eventually resolves either to Main sit domain (you do that with your DNS and hosting control panel) or that it redirects to the new area of your site where you placed "second" site's content.

I hope this helps. Without knowing more about the sites, their purpose and current set up it's a bit difficult to be more precise.

Good Luck.
