No. All SMS, MMS and iMessages are all collected in All email is, by default, put in There isn't any built-in way to merge the two.

That being said, there is some flexibility to view multiple inboxes in While in, go back to Mailboxes screen and select All Inboxes. You will see all the email messages from all of your accounts in a unified view.
