Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. The shared wire should be the Line on both switches. Is that the way you have them?
Look at both switches and if there are wires on each going to a common connection, it's a shared hot wire. The other wire on the switches goes to the lights. Yes you may combine the wires to the lights and have them on one switch.
