      I don't know where you read that it was stated that Galactus was a merger between Galan and Infinity.


        The Living Tribunal states that Galactus was once Galan AND the Sentience of the sixth universe. Which I thought showed a far above average understanding of Galactus' origin. Galactus isn't simply Galan empowered, but a product of the union between Galan and the sentience of the previous (now 6th) universe. Galan is only one half of Galactus, I was impressed with the writer's continuity accuracy (and comprehension) here.

    The Living Tribunal says

    "Galactus--formerly Galan of Taa and the sentience of the sixth Infinity."

    That could mean universe, but to me, in context it does not mean that. Seems to mean the entity. Or at least is a bit unclear. So, I was not batty. At least not totally so.

It does not mean the Infinity entity. Galan is from the sixth iteration of the universe/multiverse. This is a truth that from what I remember predates Secret Wars.

Galan - Universe 6 (not really relevant outside of Galan's backstory)
Everything Marvel related pre-Secret Wars - Universe 7
Everything after Secret Wars - Universe 8

Galactus having the sentience of the universe he's from comes if I'm not mistaken from Fantastic Four #262 during Reed's trial but Galactus's origin was detailed earlier than that in Thor #169 I believe.

And before everyone brings up the multiverse I'm just going to assume almost everything in each of the pre-big bang universes were part of multiverses where all the timelines more or less had the same start and ending points and that an appreciation of the complexities of the multiverse is ultimately not relevant to events that transpired in pre-big bang universes.
