First: I suggest you select your nb and click on menu Window -> Show
toolbar
so you can see/set clearly the style of a cell.
Second: if you wish to collect the sections under a higher cell, you
must first create the cell (above the 2 sections).
This cell should have a higher hierarchy , say subsubtitle or higher
(look in the drop down menu that you got with the first step.
So : click above the 2 sections, select the style from the drop down
menu and create a higher cell.
Now you can use ctrl-G selecting the higher cell and the 2 sections.
I also find useful most of the time to select Cell -> Grouping ->
Automatic Grouping from the main menu bar.
In this way the Grouping is done by Mathematica for you (a higher cell will
group with the lower ones below).
