Sure is possible. I do this at the school I work for so that staff and 
student homes get different settings.

I did it by removing the entire "[homes]" section from the normal 
config, and creating 2 new files containing only this section. One is 
called "homes-staff.conf" and the other "homes-students.conf". Using the 
following line, I then include the correct one for the logged in user:
include = /etc/samba/homes-%G.conf

The %G is replaced by the primary group of the user who is connected.
