I just want to store the data of an offline map application and a few games on it and i want to use the extension card to store at least most of the data on it (I want to buy a 64GB one).

Hello and Welcome to the Forums We're Glad you're here

Its really not a question of merging but how do they seam together. I have a 32 gig on my Moto Razr M and myne works seamlessly through it.

Most real app and app data are stored in the /data partition you would need root and a program like Link2SD to move apps and data to storage rather than data.
