There is no method itemByName in javascript , but there is a method getByName. This will return a swatch but does not select  in swatch panel.

The code you write is for layers. Although it will not worked for layers as well but my requirement is to select the swatch from swatch panel of the Illustrator.

Hey Developer1009,

have you found a solution for merging the swatches? I'm looking for the same feature, but I cannot find any solution.
