As an alternative to Monte's suggestion, here's a procedure Jeanne posted 
a while back:

Yes: set the substack-to-be's mainStack property.

For instance, if you have two main stacks called "Puffball" and "Hydrant",
and you want to make "Hydrant" into a substack of "Puffball", use this:

  set the mainStack of stack "Hydrant" to "Puffball"
