You can use the -q option to prevent emacs from reading the default 
.emacs file, and -l filename to make it load a specific file.  So your 
gnus instance could be started up with something like:

emacs -q -l ~/.gnus.elc

Just make sure that only your init file for the emacs-for-editing 
instance executes (gnuserve) to start up the server for gnuclient.

You'll probably want the init files to give the windows distinct title
