Currently only moderators who can Delete topics can actually Merge (Fuse) topics together. The logic being that to move all posts from one topic to the other they must be deleted from the first topic.
In our implementation we do not give moderators the possibility of deleting a topic or post (they can hide it though) because we want to keep all information for future reference and we want to avoid mis-usage of that feature. If we think about it, the feature of Fusing could be properly implemented so that its permissions where separated and not dependent on those of the feature Deleting. Having both would ensure a way more fine control over permissions and forums with lot of moderators would not have to "sacrifice" the feature of fusing for data sanity, so I'm hereby placing a feature request that this becomes implemented.
