Wow.  You are ambitious.  Such ambitions should be helped. 

But seriously, the idea would be to edit essd-sta.el  file, making a copy of 
STA-customize-alist, i.e.: 

(defvar STAse-customize-alist ... (etc, etc...))

with the only difference being to replace the 
   (inferior-ess-program . VARIABLE) 
line (you'll see it from the first 2 items) with
   (inferior-ess-program . "stata-se")
or whatever they call the executable.

Next, make a copy of the (defun stata ....)
function, call it (defun stata-se ...) or similar, which uses 
instead of
(you'll see the command).

It ought to now work, with M-x stata-se  

starting the SE version of Stata.

I don't have access to Stata (or a devel version of ESS) right now, so
can't test.
