You can just configure your squid box with multible IP-addresses,
either as IP-alias, or multiple NIC's.

Sure - just configure squid with 0 cache, and use the other box as a
parent. Or you could use a set of primitive tcp/udp proxies, which
forwards all http/icp connections the the real squid box.

But why not put up multible machines with squid, all configured as each
others sibling's, and distribute the load between the machines.
