Depending what exactly you want to do with the data, either:
(A) Keep each feature intact, including overlapping areas: Vector --> Data Management Tools --> Merge Shapefiles to One...
(B) Union to deal with overlaps: Vector --> Geoprocessing Tools --> Union
If you want to use the
Merge tool, the underlaying datasources must have the same projection, and must have the same datatype (point/line/polygon).
You can use
Save As... on one of your layers to create a new shapefile with the CRS of the other layer.
Copy and paste should work too if you set the target layer to edit mode.
