Integrate is used to maintain the integrity of shared feature boundaries by making features coincident if they fall within the specified x,y tolerance. Features that fall within the ...
I think you are looking to create multipart features. The Merge tool creates multipart feature (despite what the visual on the help page shows, the polygons' line will be maintained if they don't overlap). you can also try to Merge through the Editor toolbar. You would to build a python script to automate this or try the iterator tools in model builder.
If I am understanding correctly, you want to create a multi part polygon based on attributes where the lines of contiguous polygons don't get dissolved/removed? If so, I don't know if that is possible. Keep in mind that parts in a multipart polygon are spatially separated. They can touch each other at vertices, but they cannot share edges or overlap. ...
It seems like you are looking for the join/relate features after reading the question.
