2 cables wired together and plugged into the same jack would garble any message coming into the ethernet port, like 2 people talking to you, 1 in each ear. A solution might be to buy an ethernet hub, connect the PC to it, and connect both cables into the hub. Then, the hub could control the messages coming in from both cables. Hubs are inexpensive will serve the purpose you want.
You can't "convert" or "merge" two Ethernet cables into one, but you can combine them using something called link aggregation:
For link aggregation to work you definitely need two Ethernet connectors. Since you only have one you can use a ExpressCard/PCMCIA Ethernet adapter if your computer includes such an extension slot.
If you manage to get two Ethernet connectors working you can configure link aggregation like this:
