Default Merging non-adjacent partitions

I have cloned a small HDD to a much larger one. The partitions are all over the place and I am wondering is it possible to merge non-adjacent partitions?? Currently (in order) the partitions are:

dev/sda1 windows NTFS partition
dev/sda6 linux swap
dev/sda7 ext3 mounted as /home
dev/sda5 ext3 mounted as /

Then at the end is 200Gb approx of free space on the new HDD. What I want to do is expand sda7 (/home) to utilize all this new extra space.

I have gathered so far that sda7 is going to need to be converted to ext 2 for sure, but is it then possible to move it or somehow merge it with the free space when sda5 is in between??

Any tips or places to look for info would be appreciated.
