I have resources on multiple AWS accounts, and I want to merge all the resources together under one account. Is this possible?

It's not currently possible to merge multiple AWS accounts together.

However, AWS Organizations allows you to manage the permissions for multiple AWS accounts from one master account, as well as combine the billing for multiple accounts under one bill using Consolidated Billing.

You can also transfer some AWS resources between AWS accounts. For example, Amazon EC2 allows you to share custom AMIs between accounts, which allows you to effectively transfer instances between accounts. Because each AWS service is unique, the ways to move resources between accounts vary by service. See each service's documentation for more details—for a full list, see AWS Documentation.
