You are referring to Stata 7, it seems. 

If you have several means and standard deviations, 
you just need to use -range- to set a variable 
with desired range and use the -normden()- function. 


set obs 1001
range x 0 10 
gen n1 = normden(x-5,1)
gen n2 = normden(x-4,0.8)
gen n3 = normden(x-6,1.2)
graph n? x , c(sss) s(iii)
