Yes, I know nvidia-settings, I use it to make the xorg.conf and it works well. But I didn't have seen that Nvidia property driver allows to switch dynamically. It can do a lot of configuration but the only software that I know and that allows this it's xrandr.
TwinView only allows to use two screens for one desktop.

You are aware of nvidia-settings, aren't you? I thought with twinview
mode it could do something similar (but never tried).
