I would migrate the domain with more computer account to AD, join all
machines of the smaller one to it and then drop it. And of course
re-create the users/groups, too. samba-tool of 4.2 has some more options
to set more details on account. If you script a bit, this should be easy

Sure you can, but you must not use one of the existing domain names! If
you start a new AD installation, then you have to join all 200 + 300
computers to the domain. And you have to re-create all users of both
domain. It's much more work.
