Yes. Just do two completely separate installs.

I started off with several separate wikis on different virtual hosts, 
but I later switched to a farm setup because it was a pain updating 5 
different installs. From the user's point of view there is no way to 
tell if you have multiple installs or a farm.

About the only thing you can't do on a farm that you can do with 
separate installs is run different versions of PmWiki.
