I have them (MikTeX and the stand-alone from Pragma) in parallel
without any problem. I created "pragmatex.bat" (visible by PATH) which
calls the setuptex.bat (or whatever the script in the stand-alone
distr. is called). The two distros don't interfere at all. Once I call
"pragmatex", all the sources and executables are chosen from the
stand-alone tree when I compile the documents. (But thanks for the
idea of making another texmf-pragma tree! I always managed to break
something when mixing MikTeX and original files from Pragma, that's
why I preferred to leave things as they are and use another distro

I'm not sure, but I guess that you would need tetex to run it from
bash. Don't ask me about the numerous (still unsolved) problems I had
just because the ruby executable is only available under cygwin at the
