How combine different geometry types into the same feature class

Good afternoon.
I've searched the question in this blog. Maybe I don't use the right words but anyway my problem is not present in any post so I'll try to explain my question by opening a new one.
I have a polygon shape (eg states). I calculated the centroids and the function saved them in an another file.

Now I have point and polygon shape (centroids and polygons). I need a unique shape but functions Merge and Union (as I understand it from what I've read) can only be made between shape with the same feature class (point-point, line-line, polygon-polygon).
How can I do to combine different geometry types into the same feature class?
Is there a way to get the results I need?
Or a procedure to get the centroids of the polygons on the same shape?
I hope I explained
thanks
