HTTP has no concept of "page" - so for that; no.

For sub-domains (OR specific URLs); maybe. Because the helper you are 
asking about does not use the key_extras feature provided by latest 
Squid versions.

You need to write your own helper that does what you want. That could be 
in the form of a wrapper script that starts multiple radius helper with 
the necessary parameters, and uses key_extra parameters to decide which 
one will handle any given auth lookup.

Since you are calling it the long obsolete name "squid_radius_auth", you 
probably do not have a current Squid version which supplies the 
key_extras feature. At the very least you will have to upgrade to at 
least Squid-3.5.
