Is there a way to create a second set of tags that can use the same slug or URL?

Normally, an example set of tags will look like this by default on a WordPress blog page:
■ tag1, tag2, tag3, tag4, tag5, tag6

With two set of tags, I'm trying to create something like this:
■ tag3, tag4 | tag1, tag2, tag5, tag6

In other words, I'm trying to get tag3 and tag4 to be in the front, and use the same slug or URL as the other four.

I recently learned how to create a custom taxonomy, thanks to this tutorial, but it turns out I can't use the same slug or URL for multiple custom taxonomies.

You don't need multiple taxonomies if all you want to do is customize the order in which they are rendered. A plugin like one of these can help your order your categories, tags and taxonomies:

Is there something more specific you are trying to achieve?
