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

Do you just want this in C2

=SUM(A2,B2)

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.
