If I understand your requirements correctly, the easiest way would be
to do the following:
* Copy the entire directory example/example-DIH/solr/db to a new one,
  say example/example-DIH/solr/test
* As this is running a multi-core setup, add the new site as a different
  core instance in example/example-DIH/solr/solr.xml. Thus, just before
  the </cores> line, add:
    <core default="false" instanceDir="test" name="test"></core>
* example/example-DIH/solr/test/conf/solrconfig.xml is already set up to
  use db-data-config.xml as the DIH configuration file, so you can make
  any changes there. Else, change the name of db-data-config.xml, and
  modify the "config" attribute of the /dataimport RequestHandler in
* Make any desired changes to schema.xml, e.g., if you have different
  fields, or if they are of different types.
* Start Solr, and run it as usual, as per example/example-DIH/README.
  E.g., a dataimport would be initiated by loading
