    So with the new dialogue mods I've recently seen/discovered, I'm having a hard time just picking one! I've opened up a couple with Notepad++, but I was unsure if there are any specific steps I would need to take to merge the two files together. Is there anything I should know before giving it a shot?

      Compatibility is your biggest concern. All dialogue xnb mods are of the same format so it would be a simple task to combine them.
      However, you might want to be careful that you don't duplicate dialogue triggers.

      If 2 dialogue strings share the same npc/season/day/heart-level trigger, you might run into some issues.

        Okay, understood. So if I were to merge the two xnb files to create one, I would just have to make sure that "Summer 2" and "Summer 2" becomes "Summer 2" and "Summer 3"? (same with heart/NPC/etc)
