Probably the simplest way is to use PlotTogether from Standard AddOn 
package Graphics`Graphics`, as follows:


       Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi/4}],
       Plot[Cos[x], {x, Pi/4, Pi/2}]

(Above, I pretty-printed the DisplayTogether expression the better to 
reveal the structure and to avoid an awkward mid-line break due to short 
lines in my e-mail client editor.)

Note that you had some syntactical errors in your individual Plot 
expressions:  like all functions, Sin and Cos need square brackets 
around their arguments, that's all.

You may add individual PlotStyle options to the components of your 
graph.  For example:


     {Plot[Sin[x], { x, 0, Pi/4}, PlotStyle -> Red],
      Plot[Cos[x], {x, Pi/4, Pi/2}, PlotStyle -> Blue]}
