It depends on what you mean by 'backend'. If you are talking of another 
Ldap server, then trapping requests in protocol-ldap module (each 
message has a messageReceived handler) could be a possible way to go. 
Simply derive your own ldap-procy-protocol to do it (you will have to 
manage communication with the other servers).

If you think about storage, that's a different story. You will have to 
plug a different partition after the interceptors chain.

Not that I know.

Can you tell us a little bit more about your real intentions, so that we 
can think about other ways ?

Thanks for your interest,
