I missed the point that by "combine" you meant you wanted to overlay
certain box-drawing characters with others. AFAIK there is no standard
Unicode way to do this. Box-drawing characters are not combining
characters, and backspacing to display one character on top of another
is not something you would normally do in Unicode.
If you want to draw nice diagrams, you can only go so far before the
time comes to abandon the notion of "Unicode art" (cf. "ASCII art") and
use a real 2- or 3-dimensional diagram-drawing tool.
