Wine has some architectural limitations in this area.
E.g. see: WineHQ FAQ: 7.2 Can I install applications to be shared by multiple users?
Wine simply replicates your currently active Linux (/BSD/macOSX) user as your main / sole Windows user, when creating a WINEPREFIX.

So the closest you can have to your original question, is a setup with multiple Linux users, each with their own set of WINEPREFIX's.
They wouldn't however be able to physically share the same WINEPREFIX path.
