Here is what I do to add new versions of luatex without messing with the
standard TL trees: create a directory like local-luatex-4037 in
/path/to/texlive/bin (so it's a new "architecture" beside the regular one like
x86_64-linux or whatever). Then, in this directory:

$ cp /path/to/luatex .
$ for l in pdfluatex lualatex pdflualatex texlua texluac; do
ln -s luatex $l; done
$ for f in ../x86_64-linux/*; do ln -s $f; done

(where x86_64-linux is to be replaced by your actual arch name).

Then switching between regular TL and the one with the new luatex is a matter of
changing your path and regenerating the formats you want.
