You can use a Search and Replace filter to change one of the existing Page Paths "/" to show as "/home.html" in Google Analytics. If you do that, Google Analytics will treat them as one page in your reports.
Here's how this filter looks like:
Search String: ^/$
Replace Sring: /home.html
Keep in mind, Google Analytics filters do not apply retroactively. They start working only from the day and the minute, they are first created. One more thing - filters permanently alter your data based on the criteria specified. That's why I highly recommend testing this filter in the test view first before you use it in your Master View (you don't want to screw up anything).
Hope this helps.
