Easy enough, simply have multiple .ovpn configuration files in your 
config directory. Then be sure to reference whatever unique key, cert, 
crypto, etc etc you want in this config. Then you can start ovpn with 
whatever config file you choose, and if your using the GUI the GUI will 
automatically pick these up and will give you a menu of connections to 
connect with.
