If the vertices are not a part of the same object, it won't merge. Otherwise, it should just be a matter of distance.

Select both objects, Edit Polygons > Combine. Then you can merge vertices.

Take a look at the attached file and try converting to subd's, use the defalt settings. Some of your edges needed terminating correctly and you also had a couple of split vertices on the top of the model.
