Earn status while using Star Alliance Gold?

I have platinum status on US Airways, but recently moved to an area that predominantly uses UA/CO. I know I can use my US Airways # to get *Gold on UA/CO, but this just builds up my US Airways status which I will be using rarely from now on.

Is it possible to use my Star Alliance Gold status from US Airways while also building up my UA/CO frequent flier status? Or am I going to have to start from scratch with OnePass. Reason I'm asking is because I haven't heard of many free upgrades going to *Gold over OnePass elites.

When you fly on UA/CO, you can use your US number for *G benefits and a UA number for collecting the miles. A call to reservations can make that happen (or they can do it at the airport too).

You do have to sometimes play call centre lottery (i.e. hang up and call back to get someone else) to make this happen though. It's a fairly obscure feature so not all staff are familiar with it.
