you can just load the pdb file multiple times and then
create a representation for each of them (you can use
the clone rep plugin to copy the first from one to others
and then modify).

and then for the representation you go on the trajectory
tab and instead of "now" you can change it to the frame
number that you want to show.

now you can edit the colors or materials for each "molecule".
