You can package all of your dashboards into an app and if you do it like this, you will have a menu called "MyApp dashboards" at the top.

/opt/splunk/etc/apps/MyApp/default/data/ui/nav/default.xml:

<nav>
  <view name="MyApp_dashboards" default="true" />
  <collection label="MyApp Dashboards">
    <view name="MyApp_dashboard_1" />
    <view name="MyApp_dashboard_2" />
    <view name="MyApp_dashboard_3" />
  </collection>
</nav>

As far as merging panels, it is a trivial matter of selecting "Edit Source" on your dashboard and copying the XML for the portions you like and pasting that inside another dashboard (again, after clicking "Edit Source"). It is that easy. Then update your default navigation view to include this new dashboard.
