I modified the siam.bst such that now the order of citations is the order of bibliography appearance, and I have no more line for the same authors.

However, when I cite a bunch of papers I get the list of numbers appearing in the text. I was wondering how should I modify further the .bst file such that I can have [1-7] instead of [1,2,3,4,5,6,7]

This is not something to be done at the .bst level but in citing mechanism in the document. The cite package provides such compressed lists by default (the compress option that can be switched off with nocompress) and works with many .bst files including siam.bst:
