Windows SID ID's

Is it possible to clone/mirror a SID ID from one user account to another?  We are in the process of integrating two different domains and want to make sure the migrated users retain their old access.

You can use ADMT for your sIDHistory (and "re-acling") migration

I second tmassa99's comment; ADMT (Active Directory Migration Tool) is absolutely the way to go with this!

It might be a bit obvious, but you need a trust between your two domains in order to use ADMT.
With that in place you can migrate users accounts from one domain to the other.
I'm not sure what resources you will be using in your combined domain, but Microsoft Enterprise applications like Exchange, Lync, OCS, Sharepoint and can all be used via linked resources from your old domains. This may make migration a little more easier.

Have a look at linked account in Exchange as an example of shared resources when transitioning domains.
