This is how you move one head to another picture. 1. Using the Lasso Tool go round the head,then use the Move Tool,and drag it across to the other picture.
2. The second arrow indicates that you have brought some of the background with his head. Using the Eraser Tool go round the head removing the background. In this case it is gray and white,has you can see from the big picture,and also in the small picture. The First Arrow indicates Free Transform scale his head to size. When you are sure that you are satisfied go to the Layers Menu at the bottom you will see a one that says Flatten Image. Now Morris Gibb is one of the Beatles. There are more advanced methods than this to make it easier still,but i am not there yet. Hope this helps.

I was brought to this site because I wanted to merge two photos so one would be sitting on top of the other but there seems to be no way to do that.

Advise?

Yes there is. I made two tutorials of how to do this up above. The Orange in the bowl,and the Bee Gee one with the arrow`s on showing how to do it.
The Bee Gee one show`s you two pictures.
One of the Beatles,and the other of the Bee Gee`s.
Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool,Drag it all over the picture you want.
Using the Move Tool while you hold down the alt key,and then drag it over to the picture you want it on, and that would be sitting on each other. In the Orange one i used the Rectangular Marquee Tool. In the Bee Gee one i used the Lasso Tool.
That`s It.

There are 2 tutorials above on how to do this.
In short using the Lasso Tool go round the image of your face,and then using the Move tool drag your image of your face on where you want to put it,and thats it.

You need help on how to put a cartoon in a background. I have done two tutorials above with the Orange and Bowl plus the Beatles and the BeeGees,on how to do this.
Judging by the comments nobody has took any notice,plus i have wrote how you do it.
I will give you my email address to explain in detail how you do this. It would have helped if you had uploaded the picture.

If you are using Elements 9, 10 or 11. Here are two video tutorials on how to select an area. Once you have the area selected if you right click you can copy and paste the items. This seems the easiest way.
