Please suggest how I can show all transactions for these services under one service without any changes to the host group?

Thanks for your help!

You cannot, host groups are intended to force process groups to be split and thus also to split services (which are tied to one and only one process group). You can use naming rules to make it clearer (e.g. use the hostgroup in the service name). But there is intentionally no way to merge them if they are in separate hostgroups.

If they should be in the same service the hostgroups should be reconfigured to account for this and then you can use tags to separate them further.

There is a placeholder that you can use for this - it can also be used in a service naming rule. If you keep the host group as-is I would recommend that so it is obvious which is which:
