    I just added some old databases of my sites to my new site and some of the users were same in all of them like the admin(me) and some others too. They were not mearged because of different emails. Is it possible to merge them now?
    If Yes then how?

    The importer can merge by email address. If you revert to a backup and redo the import then you would have the opportunity to automatically merge by email. But you would have to set appropriate emails for the users you wish to merge before running the import again.

    There are no other merge options right now.

    Lol i just setuped all things and at the end realized that we can`t merge users. If i redo this i will have to redo all work again and it will take 10hrs

    As Jake said, the only way is to rollback to before the import and redo it, selecting to merge users with the same user name or email address.

    What will happen if i delete a user?
    Will these posts become by guest or something else will happen?

    Yes, any posts made by users which are subsequently deleted will show as Guest.
