Generally speaking you cannot update the python version for FWTools.

If you are on linux, it is not particularly hard to build GDAL with
python support from source, and I would just advise that instead of
using FWTools - if you need to mix things.

If you are windows, perhaps you could use OSGeo4W which uses a newer
Python version (2.5 I think).

It sounds like the gdal_merge.py script would be suitable for this purpose
assuming the source images have appropriate georeferencing.  In any event,
the gdal_merge.py script could likely be an example from which you build
what you need.
