Sorry, but I don't really understand your use case and the problem
you see.

It sounds like you are just looking for a way to keep separate, and
separately loadable, sets of bookmarks.  Is that it?

If so, you can do that with vanilla Emacs bookmark.el, but Bookmark+
can help.  It makes it easier to have multiple bookmark files, switch
among them during an Emacs session, combine any of them during a
session, etc.

If it sounds to you like this might help then you might want to
take a look at this part of the Bookmark+ doc, about using multiple
bookmark files:
