r.patch will paste rasters together.

You can use g.region to set an "area of interest", and if you really
want a subset, it's easy to use r.mapcalc as in:

GRASS ~/> echo "newmap = oldmap" | r.mapcalc

The new map will only contain parts of oldmap that fall within the
current "region" settings.  It's worth learning r.mapcalc, since you can
do alot of fairly arbitrary stuff with it (at least with rasters).
