what do you mean it's not combining?

you just select the meshes, and hit the button on the shelf or Mesh > Combine

are you getting errors? what is the error? you can only combine two polygon meshes

when you combine the pieces of geometry will act as one, the pivot point will be at the origin of the scene (so you'll probably want to move that if that's not where you want it to be) and stuff happens in your outliner and hypergraph

you probably don't have any polygons selected

are you're pieces of geometry polygons? or NURBS or sub-d
