Polys?
If so:
1. Select both, Polygons -> Combine.
2. Polygons -> Append polygons, select each edge you want to connect and then select the opposing one on the other side. Repeat until all edges have a new poly connecting them.

in the previous steps did you smooth the edges? if so you may need to smooth out the new edges.

edit polygons/normals/soften-harden
