Yes, it's possible. Just install scratchbox and then install each
SDK. You don't need any HOWTO nor special steps to follow.

In fact I installed Maemo 2, 3 and 4 in the same machine without any

A complete Debian system with all three SDKs in a QEMU compressed
image is ~1.2 GB

I don't know what is the "standard" way of detecting which version of
Maemo you're using, but you can do it using autoconf and checking the
versions of some basic libraries such as libosso and hildon.
