What does it mean when baking when it says just barely combine. How do you know it's barely combined or totally combined. What happens if something is mixed too much?

It's just a friendly way of saying: don't over-mix!!
If some baked goods are mixed too much they will toughen up. So mix together, but stop immediately when first combined.
