If you want things connected node for node (mesh level), you need to make a multi-body part. This is done in DM (or SpaceClaim) and is created similarly to an assembly...

Alternatively, you could use bonded contact, which can "glue" together two parts with dissimilar meshes. Contact can be applied automatically or manually. Look it up in the help.
