    So I have an established Fan Page. But on a different account I have a personal profile with my product name in the url that I'd like to use for my fan page. Is it possible to turn the personal profile into a fan page, and merge it with my fan page that's on a different account and use the name that was on my profile in the new URL?

    I don't think that's possible, you can only merge page with another page. Hope this help!

    that feature is hidden in the resources area.

    go to your page, click on edit page and in the resources area, you should be able to see it.

    There's no merge under the Resource section... or I'm blind maybe.

    I believe you can only merge pages that are an exact name match, so f you have an eligible page it will appear as "Merge duplicate pages".

    As for the merging Facebook account into a fan page, that is not possible.

    You can convert your personal account to a page, but the url for your personal account page may be changed in the new url, and the new page's name should be same or similar with your personal account. (Convert account to a page link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?migrate)

    If you want to merge your personal page with the exist old page, the two pages' name, type,category must be similar, or they can't merge.
