Two possible solutions come to my mind:

1) you can youse a PDF library, such as iText[1], that can merge PDFs

2) you can merge two or more fo files into one by generating a
page-sequence for each input file. Each sequence will start on a new
page, the initial page number can be set using the property

Maybe XEP provides a solutions for this as well - at least I don't know it.
