If you have a small number of identical molecules you can achieve something along those lines by creating a trajectory where, say, the first half is the coordinates of the first molecule and the second half is the coordinated of the second molecule (for the case of two identical molecules). No matter the way you go about it there is no avoiding getting some artificial contribution to the transition probabilities between clusters.
