MKVMerge is the tool you want. Matroska is just a container, so you
don't have to worry about codecs or anything like that. Just run the
muxer, specify the tracks you want (that is, audio tracks, video tracks,
subtitle tracks, and chapter listings), attachments (documents, images,
support files for subtitles, fonts, etc), and let 'er rip!

In order to make a video like that, you need a good source. You'd need
some kind of digital television tuner or a BluRay disc, a good high
definition camcorder (Something running DVCPro HD, or XDCam, perhaps a
crazy JVC "ProHD" HDV camera or something), and some careful tweaking of
the encoder to get that kind of quality. But once you get all that taken
care of, it's a waiting game. Trial-and-error is involved too, so
there's a lot of patience that goes into it. But, once you figure out
how everything works, and the optimal configurations, and such, it's all
