You have already discovered the Ctrl-drag + Shift Key. If you also add in the Alt key you can get in between the grid snapping. You can also use the size and position controls to type in the exact width/height/x-position/y-position so that the lines can be exactly lined up. Finally, you have the option of using the Nudge keys (arrow keys) to move a shape. If you zoom in on that border gap, you can select one shape and use the arrow key - if it jumps in big steps, hold the Shift key and the arrow key will move in tiny increments so you can exactly line up the lines.

When the dotted lines overlap you have discovered that they can combine to make a solid line. To avoid this, you have three choices:
1. Place a white box on a layer between the two boxes so only one line shows
2. Make tiny adjustments to the height of the boxes so the dashes align exactly. On my machine, I dialled in a height of 99.95mm and the dashes aligned.
3. Change the lines to a solid fill.
