Yes, you can have different SideBars for each group and, for the results 
you want, you can use a single SideBar whose context automatically 
changes for eacg group.

PmWiki has a great feature called PageLists that is used for 
automatically generating lists of pages that can be customized.

To get the results you want, you could edit the existing site-wide 
SideBar (located at Site/SideBar) and use the "group=" parameter of 
pagelist and specify the group to equal the currently viewed group using 
the PageVariable {$Group} or, in the PmWiki 2.2.0-beta series, you would 
use (*$Group} for the same purpose.

Here are some documentation pages you can take a look at
