It is as simple as running
`guix system reconfigure /path/to/config.scm`.

That will reconfigure your os using the config file based on the current
commit of guix.

Only way to change the commit, as you said, is `guix pull`.

Which is why when updating Guix System. You first run `guix pull`, to
get new versions of packages etc. Then `guix system reconfigure` to
reconfigure your os based on that commit.

I hope that clears it up.
