merging employee record to another module

95% of my “employees” and users are outside contractors(models, beauty consultants etc) I need to either rename them from employees to "models"etc so when there is a show I can see what “models” are available in that area using map markers. I have setup custom modules for these users but now have duplicate names and records in system(employees and “models”)
So my question is there a way to merge an employee record with a “model” module OR a way to see multiple employees in a given area in maps?

Maybe there is a way to "create new "model"in the custom module from employee list?
seems redundant to put contact info in both user record and the custom module.
