In either case it is too much work to make the battle engine support that kind of thing, it wont happen.
I don't see how it would make things any different for competitive battlers. Regular players would not be able to edit their Pokemon this way. Only server admins would be able to edit the Pokemon of trainers, which would allow them to create completely unique gym/trainer challenges that the players have never seen before.
Also, doesn't the battle engine already support this kind of thing? There are currently hundreds of Pokemon that can have the same ability, such as intimidate, moxie, mold breaker, etc. There are even Pokemon with the trace ability, which allows them to copy any ability in the game (except for abilities unique to one Pokemon, such as Aegislash's stance change or Mimikyu's disguise).
