In addition to TechHelp24's guide, you may wish to review the following link for zone merging out of the FOS Admin Guide:

http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/html_product_manuals/FOS_AG_710/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm#href=zone.17.13.html

areas to review:

1.  Viewing the configuration in the effective zone database

2.  merging rules

3.  zone merging scenarios

The above are consideration to be used in conjunction with the overall steps that TechHelp24 pointed out.
