You can't do that. You can achieve a mostly similar effect if you duplicate the skin folder, but some programmed functions may not work on the duplicated skin if they are directed using file locations

Just a terminology issue: the "skin folder" in Rainmeter is named Config. Details: https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/skins/#Config

OK so it works if I have a different config, what about a variant?

Is there any compatabilty problems if I reuse the same names for all the meters etc?

I wanted to create 1 skin with a chooser of the 'variable'

In two different skins? No problem.
