    two DBs with database link vs. one DB with 2 schemas

    We currently have two databases: DB1 has schema under user A and DB2 has schema under user B. They are linked via database links and referenced via synonyms.

    I'd like to merge them into one DB. Can I simply import user A's schema to DB2 and modify synonyms (ie., in USER_SYNONYMS, set the DB_LINK column to NULL and set the TABLE_OWNER column to user A)?

    Having two dbs is a resoruce consumer, but its eases the management (indipendent of one another). If you think both the instances serve the same purpose( i.e. taking one down would majorly effect the other, like it virtually effects the other) then I would suggest that you go ahead and merge them to gether. If its vice versa, then keeping them different is my advice.
