In the Young Women organization the class titles are indeed fixed. There's not much you can do about that. You just need to pick what you would call the combined class. Let's suppose you call it the Laurel class. Then you can go to the Mia Maid organization, and within the Members list, you click on the Remove link by each member in turn, and for the destination organization you specify "Laurels".
The result of that will be to have all the Mia Maids in the Laurel class, and once they are in the class, they can be selected to fill leadership positions.
The age guidelines will control how girls are moved into classes automatically, but you can move them manually into other classes. So when a girl turns 14, she'll move automatically into Mia Maids; you'll then need to manually move her into Laurels. The same thing would happen if a 14-15 year old girl moved into the ward. But those events should be rare, and so are easily handled manually.

You first add the secretary to the ward as an Out of Unit member
. That will add her automatically to the Beehive class (assuming you enter the right sex and birthdate). Then you can add her to the position of Beehive Class Secretary.
