It dosn't have to be all once object, for mechanical things, I normaly don't bother joining them all the time.. Unless I'm going to texture a lot things that really are fused in real life. Just parint it togather if you need to move it all somewhere.

You will need to select your nurbs cable go to modify> convert> nurbs to polygons. This will convert your nurbs cable into a polygon cable, now you will be able to combine your cables to the rest of your robot.
