Un-merging photos in Lightroom?

Good morning.

Is there any way to "unmerge" photos in Lightroom?

I'm working on a panorama and merged 16 pics, but decided to add 3-4 more. I was having trouble doing it (computer taking forever - I figured it was computer and the 500MB file size. Anyway, I thought maybe I could combine the remaining 4 images and then join the two merged complications. That will not merge, so I would like to try adding the other 4 images one at a time to the big compilation of 16 images.

My problem is that Lightroom won't allow me to unmerge the smaller compilation of 4 merged images so I can do that. Nor will it allow me to reimport them into Lightroom, even if I change their filename.

I already looked for an answer on Google, which does not seem to differentiate "unmerge" from "merge," and in Lightroom Help, in which I also found no answer.

I may go re-shoot the panorama today, but would prefer to be able to shoot other things.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Peter
