My current database is running on 32bit OS and datafiles are of size 2GB.
Is it possible for me to combine the datafiles and create a single 20GB datafile when i migrate to 64bit OS.

In 64 bit OS, yes.
You cannot just 'combine' the datafiles.
Create a tablespace with one datafile of 20gb.

bigfile tablespaces are typically meant for terabyte datafiles.
20gb is minuscule Smile

Upto you.
You can export/import the schema.
You can just move the objects to another tablespace (alter table move)..
You can use online redefinition using dbms_redefinition.
All you need is to create a new tablespace with one 20gb datafile and choose your method.
On other hand, i would consider backup/recovery implications of backing a sinlge 20gb file Smile
Again, it is upto you and your need.
