You really need to find someone with BIRT knowledge who speaks one of your native languages.|
The BIRT Excel emitter will automatically generate merged cells when the report has multiple elements with overlapping borders. That's not something you have control over.
For example, if I have a top grid, three columns, widths 1 inch, 5 inches, 1 inch;
then I have a data table, five columns, widths 1 inch, 2 inches, 1 inch, 1 inch, 2 inches;
The output exported to Excel will have seven columns; the top grid will have cells in column A, columns BCDEF merged, column G. Then after a blank row, the data table will have cells in column A, columns BC merged, column D, column E and finally columns FG merged.
That is a vast over simplification (and ignores the effects of cell margins and padding) but it should give you an answer to your question.
