1. Homework assignment? We don't do homework here.
2. If not, a mixture model of some sort? I suggest you state the
context of the problem more fully. R has several packages to do
mixture modeling, if that's what you're trying to do.
3. In any case, this cannot be done with lm() (at least without tricks).
4. In your notation below, the "separate" regressions can be stacked
into a single constrained regression model.
5. You might do better to find local statistical help, as you may have
bitten off more than you can chew.
