removing wall, can I patch laminate floor to connect 2 laminate floors?
 
Have 8" wide plank style pergo laminate (17 years old) in entry. It was professionally installed using glue. Have 15-1/2" wide high quality (expensive) laminate in adjacent room. Also professionally installed about 5 years ago, glueless. The two different floors are laid perpendicular to each other. The seams in one room run north/south and in the adjacent room run east/west.

The different laminate floors are in same colors and are joined with a molding strip of some sort in the door way where they connect. I want to remove a four foot section of wall next to the doorway and make a larger opening between the two rooms. There are sufficient left overs of either style of laminate and the molding strip. Can the hole in the floor (after removal of wall section) be patched?

Thanks in advance!

Is the section if wall you are removing load bearing?
