Can the Apple Photos for Mac Library be used on a NAS (Network Storage Volume)?

No. Apple Photos for Mac Library file needs to be stored on a MacOS Extended storage volume or to a APFS storage volume for newer version of MacOS. You can store the images, pictures, and video files on a NAS (Network Storage Volume), if you use the option in Apple Photos for Mac not to save images, pictures, videos to the Photo for Mac Library, the Photos for Mac Library file will reference the images, pictures, videos on the NAS (Network Storage Volume). This is only recommended for a more professional Mac user to use and is often used by professional photographers and Apple Mac Studio users.

How can you merge a Photos for Mac Photos Library file?

If you have one or more Photos for Mac Photos libraries files on your Apple Mac computer, it is possible to merge the Photos libraries.
If you just have pictures • images • videos in both libraries and no Albums the images from one Photos Library file can be exported but the Albums and other data will not merge.

For Photos libraries that have albums and metadata, then a third-party software tools is required to merge a Apple Photos Library.

Another way would be to use an Apple ID account to upload each Photos for Mac Library file to the iCloud Photos Library. by assigning a Photos for Mac Library as the Systems Library, then allow for the iCloud upload and download to complete, the do the same for the other Apple Photo Library files that you have.

Make a backup copy of all of your Apple Photos for Mac Library files to an external storage volume that is no older than 3 to 4 years old.
Or use an external SSD flash storage volume, as a flash SSD today is more reliable than a conventional hard disk storage volume.
