Turning Silver to Gold at an atomic level

What would need to happen for silver to become gold? Such as, if two silver smashed together in nuclear fusion, could that form a gold atom, with pieces left over, or would it become another element?

Also, when that happened, what would be the energy and situational requirements for this to happen? And would it change based on the different elements used/created?
