Merging two actress pages with differing info

These two pages are for the same actress: and The confusion being the accented á in her name.

To merge these pages into one, do I need to parse out the inconsistencies between both pages? As in, manually add the correct name to a television episode that credits her under the incorrect one? 

Or would it be more prudent to collapse the two pages into one by making the unaccented name as an alias/alternate? Just trying to find the easiest way to clean up the confusion and disorder on both pages. Thank you!

Another issue: 
Bárbara López (II) name page is listed as Actress.

Barbara Lopez (VI) name page is listed as Actor. 

First, go to the Barbara Lopez (VI) name page and submit an update to the Gender section and click the button to the left of the word Female. 
Give 2-3 days (more or less) for processing. 

After the first submission has been completed, I would strongly suggest submitting a name merge. In this case, go back to the Barbara Lopez (VI) name page. When you get to Name Correction or Merge, type (or cut and paste) the name in the form this way:

López, Bárbara (II)

Any duplicate titles on both filmographies will eventually be merged into one.

Instructions on submitting a name merge are listed in the link below. 
IMDb Help Center Page:
You have two name pages for the same person, how can I merge them?/Person has two pages, how can they be combined?

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions.
