Preview app

Apple’s built in pdf reader app called ‘Preview’ can merge 2 PDF files and edit PDF files. In macOS Sierra 10.12 all you need to do is drag the thumbnails that you want to merge from one PDF document to the other and then save the document.

Some people are reporting that this method (described in detail below) and even Apple’s own instructions DO NOT WORK for some people. If this doesn’t work for you, then after you merge the files, instead of choosing ‘Save’ instead go to File menu and select ‘Print’ then select ‘Save as PDF.’  I have added this to the instructions below. I have both methods (Save and Print)  on my Preview with MacOS Sierra and they both work. You may have to try both and see which works for you.

Read on for some screenshots of what this looks like.
