I have a face mesh and a torso mesh that don't quite align. Without moving the vertices in the torso mesh, I need to merge the positions of the corresponding vertices from the face mesh. What is the best way to do this?
To clarify, the Torso is an appended object being used as a reference to use when adjusting the mesh in the Face object. The ultimate goal is simply to have the vertices of the face perimeter/torso neck opening share the same coords. The Torso object will be removed at the end of this to allow the final, adjusted face mesh to be exported to FBX.

I'm afraid that shrinkwrap doesn't do what I need, it is for surfaces and these are the edges of two shells. Applying shrinkwrap as described causes the following result:
The shrinkwrap method makes for a surface that is visibly sealed, but on close inspection, the vertices aren't actually merged.
I need the vertices of the face mesh to end up in the same location as the corresponding vertices in the torso mesh. The two seams need to have the vertices merged (or the vertex coords matching) for each seam, without the vertices on the torso mesh moving. That last point is critical.
I tried the second method (incredibly detailed, thank you). It almost works, but the torso mesh vertices seem to be moving. Unfortunately, Blender doesn't have a concept of anchoring vertices, so the only thing that seems to work is using the linking suggested and selecting pairs of vertices and then Merge->To Last (with the torso vertices selected last). If this is as close as I can get, I can live with this solution. However, if there is a way to perform a Merge To Last on two groups (the two edge loops), that would be great.
