You need to create a separate branch, with the "bzr branch" command.
Then you can commit there with "bzr ci".

Alternatively, you can use "bzr ci --local" in the bound branch, but
this is less recommended, since it requires you to be aware of local
commits that you didn't push to the remote repository.

Ye, "bzr diff" supports versions.  E.g.,

  bzr diff -r101100..101101

will produce the diffs between the two named versions.

Nothing else is required.

You commit another change and use "bzr diff" as above, with a
different couple of revision numbers.
