I'm trying to do the following:

1.) IF MERGEFIELD TITLE = "Mr and Mrs." THEN Insert MERGEFIELD TITLE
2.) IF MERGEFIELD TITLE = "Mr." OR "Mrs." THEN Insert MERGEFIELD TITLE plus a space followed by MERGEFIELD FIRST_NAME

Is this possible, and if so what is the expression I would use for this?

You can repeat the test in separate IF fields for each acceptable value
