On the channels window you can right-click to edit each channel preset
assignment. You may select a bank and program instrument and assign it to
the given channel. Then this assignment maybe saved under a preset name
for future reuse.

However, you have to notice that the loaded soundfonts behave like a
stack. You may not access an instrument with the same bank-program number
of a loaded soundfont if there's another soundfont on top of it that
implements the same bank-program.

Probably you might reorganize the soundfont loading order, in the
setup/soundfonts dialog...

Hope this helps too.
