Is this possible? (Switching content)

I've been toying with the idea of starting a two piece blues rock band lately- just me and a drummer. I'm currently running a few dirts, a fuzz, vibrato, and delay into the front end of a Germino Masonette Plexi. I absolutely love this amp and the tone I get with it, but for playing as a two piece, the idea of a two amp rig has been floating around in my head more often. I would run a second amp clean/edge of breakup. I'm thinking something like an Ampeg or a Valco-based clone. Maybe even a Blackface Bassman. I want a thick, really fat sound. This amp would (hopefully) be used for three things; a second amp to run stereo effects with, a clean amp that I can switch in and out, and an amp that I will run a fuzz and octave pedal into combined with the Germino to beef up single notes riffs. Now I will say that running effects in stereo is the least important part, because I don't need to. I'm just wondering if I can still switch in and out the amps so that I can use one or the other or both while running a stereo pedal feeding both. I can't think of a way to do this without multiple A/B boxes or mute switches. I was really into using the amps in stereo with an El Cap and a Flint, but now that C-Bread is starting to look like they're gonna make the Echorec delay soon which is mono, it would only be stereo from the Flint. So if I can do it, cool, but if not no big deal. I'd ideally like this to be the signal chain(s).

Guitar -> Wah -> Fuzz -> OD1 -> OD2 -> Phaser/Vibe -> Delay -> Flint

Stereo out 1: straight to Germino
Stereo out 2: Fuzz 2 -> Octave -> Clean amp

Hopefully that lays it out a little better. The problem is just how to switch the amps in and out.

If you abandon the stereo idea, this is a quick fix. Simply run an A/B box after the Flint and have the first output going to the Germino and the second going into the fuzz and octaver before the 2nd amp and then straight in like any other setup (Valcos are SUHWEEEET). Problem solved! :aok

since running effects in stereo isnt a big deal, then i would forget the stereo out 2 channel, and just run an a/b/y box after stereo out 1. channel a to the germino, channel 2 to the clean amp. right?

Wouldn't an A/B/Y box after the stereo outs work? "A" for the Germino, "B" for the other and then "Y" is the stereo signal. Am I over simplifying or would that work?
