Is there a way to select certain layers in the Layer Panel?
Hello,

Is there a way to shift/ctrl-click certain layer to move, merge or able to delete at once?

Also is it possible to copy and paste guides line to a new document? (I'm using 960 grid btw.)

Hi hibi,
In the current Gimp releases it is not possible to select more than one layer in the Layers dialog.
However, you can 'Chain' layers allowing you to move all the chained layers at one time. (this also works for various other transformation tools too)
   
Under the Image menu there is Merge Visible Layers. So using the 'eye' icon you can achieve merging multiple layers at one time.
As for multiple Deletions, you will need a script for that.
Such as http://gimpscripts.com/2014/01/multiple-layer-actions
