The cells of a table are really just individual frames, grouped. The 
only thing unique to the cells of a table versus a "regular" frame is 
that you can specify different line characteristics for each cell and 
select whether to apply them to all the borders of the cell.

The not obvious way to get at this is to hold down Shift+Alt, then click 
on a cell to select an individual. (Don't ungroup the table)

Now if you go to the Line tab of Properties, you will see the option to 
choose which of the sides to apply your line features to.

You can't merge cells in the usual sense, but once cells are ungrouped 
you can enlarge or change the shape of individual cells. If you don't 
ungroup you will change the dimensions of an entire row or column. You 
can also change the type of frame to image or whatever.
