1. What models are you trying to fit? Details matter, and it is
impossible to give a good answer without specifics.

2. In general terms, to do this one combines all the data and allows
for "appropriate" changes in the model parameters for the different
groups. For example, different intercepts, rate constants, etc. This
is where the specifics matter.

3. This is really more a statistics than an R question, and you would
probably do better to pursue these issues either with a local
statistical resource or on a statistics site, like
