Is someone able to explain in layman terms how the merge of late last year was done in terms of coordinating a new piece of code into the underlying Ethereum code?

In particular, I was wondering, hypothetically if PoW miners continued to support and run the old software, could they have “kept it going”?

How is it that the Ethereum team is able to change the code without miner support?
