Now I want to simply the model by constrainning the second
(2.group#c.age) and the third terms (3.group#c.age) to be equal
(suppose that will improve the model fit), how should I do this?


With complete generality (which you can apply to other estimators, whether or not they allow constraint options),

use http://www.stata-press.com/data/r11/fvex, clear
g group23 = group==2 | group==3
regress y i.group i.group#c.age
regress y i.group group23#c.age
