Well... if it the /ProjectB/trunk folder already exists you of course can't copy it there. Is there anything in /ProjectB/trunk? If not... delete it. Then do your copy.

No need to merge after you do the copy.

BTW: I don't use subclipse but what the steps should be the same. The command line would be something like:

svn cp http://servername/Project_A/branches/Branch_A http://servername/ProjectB/trunk

(please don't top post)
