MS SQL Query + Merge Data

I have a table that i am using to load data in my database, i want to move the data to another table, and merge the rows that have the same Call_ID into one row.

so if call_id is the same, then it would only create one row in the new table, is this even possible with a query ?

Yes, using the MERGE command

Be aware that MERGE has sometimes has performance issues.  There are also some claims of faulty logic.

For now, I'd stick the "standard" UPDATE and then INSERT.
