Yes - but only for different virtual hosts.

You can put different mod_dbd directives within different <VirtualHost> sections.  You
can even use 
different DBDriver and DBDParams if you have completely different databases, e.g. MySQL and

mod_dbd only provides connections from one set of mod_dbd directives per virtual host, so
you can't 
access more than one database from the same virtual host.

If you are writing your own module, you could always open ad-hoc database connections directly
the apr-util functions apr_dbd_get_driver(), apr_dbd_open_ex(), apr_dbd_close(), etc. instead
using the pool of connections provided by mod_dbd.
