I would recommend reading the guide, it'll help get some of the
concepts. In this case though:

1) You want PUSH and PULL - have the producers PUSH messages to one
PULL socket which aggregates. Have the PUSHes connect(), the PULL
2) Don't use the same identity on multiple sockets. In this case, you
don't need identity at all, but in general, you don't want to have
multiple sockets with the same one.
