How to work with Google Maps / Google My Business and G+

Where can one get help with Google My Business / Google Maps for business? I have looked and there does not appear to be a product forum for Google Local or Google My Business?  Equally, there does not appear to be a product forum for Google Plus.......  Yet there are Google product forums for defunct products (like site builder etc).
So where to post my question!!  I thought I'd try in here :-)

It seems a nightmare trying to get anything done on Google My Business in conjunction with Google Plus and Google Maps!  Google + and Google My Business have changed so much over the last few years - a lot of content / methods of changing accounts etc - are now deprecated.
Over the years, it seems I have created several G+ accounts (not by my choosing).  I think they got created automatically when e.g. signing up to YouTube, Gmail, My Business, etc....
My question is this:
I recently created a new map entry for a business location.  Google appears to have automatically (again) created an associated Google Plus account - but I already have 2 other G+ accounts for the business - there appears to be no way to merge them.  If I delete the newly created G+ page - which is linked to my newly entered G Map / Local business entry, I am concerned this will impact on my SEO.  If I delete the existing G+ pages for the business, I will lose all of my historical entries!!
Looking for some steerage here!

Thank you.
