ClearCollect or Patch?

Hi, I aim to auto-populate a form from the information retrieved from two QR codes. Below is the flow of what I aim to achieve and what I've done:

  1. QR code 1 is scanned, Split the QR code data string into rows, store them into collection1.
  2. QR code 2 is scanned, Split the QR code data string into rows, store them into collection2. 
  3. Auto-populate Form1, submit to database. 

Step 3 is where I'm stuck. To auto populate the form, should I use Patch or ClearCollect function to merge the two collections? How do I go about this? Is it possible to patch a form with data from collections? I do have other fields in the form that are not included in the previous collections, that need to be entered manually by the user. 

 

Thank you.
