Use a formula? Don't think you can copy two cells and paste the sum (without VBA anyway).

There's no shortcut to perform this action via keyboard or mouse click.  You have to do this via a formula:
in Cell C1 enter "=A1+B1"  or "=CONCATENATE(A1,B1)"

If you use barryhoudini's formula in cell C2, you can then

copy the sum (ctrl-c)
paste as a value (instead of a formula) it using paste special/values (available by right-clicking, or from the ribbon Home/Clipboard.
