Is it possible to merge a file like larrim.utm? I got two mods I want to use but they're kind of conflicting with each other. Also, one of the two also conflicts with a dan14_sherruk.utc. If I could merge that one also it'd be great, if not I can always deal without that mod.

UTM files are templates for merchant stores, and UTC file are character templates. Both are GFF format files though.

So, you can use the GFF Comparison Tool (http://www.starwarsknights.com/tools.php#gmt) to see what has been changed in one of the files by comparing it against the original, and then apply those changes to the other of the modded files using a GFF Editor. This should work unless both mods modify exactly the same data within the files.

Ok I just tried it and I think it works, but I think I'm getting a little over my head. I had a thought, Since larrim is a merchant, would it be possible to tweak the file a little bit and change it to a different merchant?

You can...but it may require more steps than you may be willing to do.
What you would have to do is figure out what merchant you want to make it, extract that file with Kotor Tool, add the new merchant items with a .gff editor and drop the file in your override folder.

I'll tell you what, if you can't figure out how to merge the two files, which is really the simplest way, just PM me and I can either walk you through it step by step or you can send me the two files and I'll give you a hand.
