And why not? Set in your home wiki's config.php $Skin = 'skinA';
and set in farmconfig.php $Skin = 'skinB';
and you get your local skin skinA and your global skin for other wikis
as skinB.

But if you mean that you want to change a few things for the pmwiki
skin for instance, just for your home wiki, and not for other wikis,
then you would need to create a copy of the pmwiki skin first, modify
that, and set your skin to the modified directory
$Skin= 'pmwiki-modified';

So you need to be aware that the pub/ directory is shared with others,
and be careful how you modify stuff.
