On my laptop I have an electrum segwit wallet.  I have an old wallet seed with some btc scraps (less than $100), this is the old style addresses.  Am I able to just import the seed into the segwit wallet, or do I have to create 2 different electrum wallets?

You create another wallet regardless.

File > New/Restore > Next > Standard Wallet > Next > I already have a seed > enter your seed

You can then send over those bitcoin to your main wallet.

You can have as many wallets as you want. Each wallet is a file; create the ones you want and access them my selecting the file when you open Electrum.

Yes, it will just ask for which wallet do you want to open anyhow, so you can have two wallet files on a single Electrum client.

Or you could do this instead if you don't want the hassle of having to access two different wallets:

File > New/restore > Standard Wallet > I already have a seed > Options (tick the box for BIP39) > Enter Seed > On the derivation path text box, change 44' to 49' > the rest is just a bunch of clicking next until you're done.

Your addresses and balance with appear once the wallet is done syncing, all on a single wallet file.

Electrum itself is not the wallet. Electrum is just a client that allows you to create and access your wallets. You know, for us normies here that currently doesn't know how to manage wallets through command line.
