Is it possible?

Not without some hacking.

I suppose the best way would be to hack the install script and change some names but a) is this as trivial as it sounds and b) would both installations work without picking on each other?

Probably... Keep in mind as well that would require two separate licenses.

I know! But I got to ask before I buy, right? =)

I did this and it was shockingly easy. Used a search and replace tool to rename "vba" to "vid" and "gallery" to "video" in all the scripts. Several passes, each case-sensitive.
The only surprise was some hard-coded numbers in the install script, used to add rows in the phrase table. These caused "duplicate id" errors in sql. So I edited all the numbers in that scripts changing from 5xx to 6xx.
So far so good, I am up and running with a video gallery. But I am not using photo gallery (just holding that place in reserve), so any conflicts may not be biting me in the face. It seems to be all there and working and holding it's own.
