what I’m looking for is an adhesive that will not show thru a piece of white acrylic

A heavy duty double sided tape like 3M VHB might do the trick. It also comes in sheets.

They’ll all show through in some capacity - what you need to focus on is having the join be even so it looks shaded rather than wiggly lines or whatever. Tape makes that easiest since you can cut it to the exact shape, but it’s doable with the glues mentioned as well with some patience.
