It depents what you're meaning. You can start e. g. "smbd" with -c to
give an alternative configuration file. -> man smbd
But for switching to this other file, you have to kill all smbd
processes and restart smbd.

Or you can include a file in your smb.conf, that contains additional
stuff like e. g. just this share.

See smb.conf manpage: include
