Not sure why you would want to do that but sure - pgp (gnupg) can encrypt blocks of text to different people.

No, it doesn't have to. Using a gui tool such as the pgp desktop or the gnupg equivalent,  Select a block of text,  copy to clipboard, encrypt clipboard,  paste back. Repeat for the next block...

Decrypt as normal - software will show that there are three "messages" in the email, and that only one can be decrypted. Give it a go and see - something like windows privacy tray + gnupg will work, & is free :)
