You can use the Loader object to do dynamic loading.

As for doing it on "the same object", forget about it. Use encapsulation 
to do stuff like this. Don't ever allow implementation details like this 
to spill over into using objects. You wouldn't do this in C++ (I hope) 
and you shouldn't do it in QML either.

So place the loading object in a wrapper instead of letting other 
objects use it directly.
