u can use the weldments for that.
for that u have to create your tube profile as per your requirement.
then create 1st tube using ur created tube profile....then create another tube as you wish to connect.....plz do not intersect each other.....then use trim extent. hope it will work for u.

You can create a plane at the middle of the other tube, and apply coincident mates to the face of the tube and the plane. after that you can use width mates (in advanced mates) to constrain it.
