I searched for this, however I'm probably not familiar with the terminology, so could not find what I wanted. Is there a way to move only one vertex of the edge? Example:

Move one vertex of the edge

I've added a cube, then subdivided the top and bottom edges and added two edges from the top-left and top-middle vertices to the bottom-right vertex. I want to move only the "left" vertex (top-left to bottom-right - selected on the left-most cube) to the bottom-middle vertex, so I arrive at either of the two right-most configurations below.

I understand I can delete the edge and create another one (which is what I did to demonstrate the above anyway), just wondering if this can be done to save time when moving several vertices at once.

I guess the main reason is to be able to manually refine things such as using Alt+F to join a cylinder and a cube, getting this:

Move edge for complex joints

So it would be easier to move the three selected ones to the bottom-middle vertex, instead of deleting them and then creating the three new ones.

Of course, regardless of the above question, there might be an easier way to do what I showed in the lase image - open to suggestions here. The point is to join two faces together so that the join is smooth.

You can use AltV for Rip fill.

enter image description here

Normally you could just press G with the vertex selected (or GG if you wanted to slide a vertex along the edge).
However, since the vertex you want to move has other edges connected to it, you must create a new, separate vertex with the one edge attached (Rip, V), and then fill in the newly formed hole (Fill, F). The Rip Fill tool does these two operations automatically.

I assumed that there is only one vertex at the corner. If you have multiple vertices in the same place (doubles), then you need only to press G with the right one selected.
