Is is possible to incorporate a mailmerge field into the chilkat email software. All i want to be able to do is incorporate a couple of merge fields so the email reads Dear FIRST_name in the email body etc.

I'm not sure of what the appropriate answer is for your question. I can say how I would do it...
I would create an HTML template, which might be a file, but could also simply be a string literal found directly within your source code. The template would use a keyword, such as "FIRST_NAME" that would be replaced using ordinary string operators in your programming language.
For example (in pseudo-code)
string htmlTemplate = "<html><body>
Then you would do your string substitutions (using whatever syntax or functionality is available in your programming language).
string actualHtml = htmlTemplate.Replace("FIRST_NAME","Matt");And then you would set the HTML body of the email using the actual HTML:
