hm, despite the subject line and your text, I still don't know
completely what you want ;).
Anyway, I'll try to explain. Smart quotes are configurable in the file
configuration/smart-quotes-modes.txt. Unfortunately, there is no UI
dialog for this. However, you can add new settings there. So you could
add something like "[Unicode Swedish]" and "[Unicode English]". Then
both settings are available from the menu.
