You can accomplish this with a hook:

(defun my-ess-mode-hook ()
  (local-set-key "\C-c\C-c" 'do-something-helpful)
  (local-set-key "\C-c\C-d" 'do-something-clever))

(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook 'my-ess-mode-hook)

Placing the above code in your .emacs file will cause the ess-mode
keybindings for C-c C-c and C-c C-d to be replaced by the named

You'll need to pick real functions of course, and it won't take effect
until your .emacs is next evaluated, normally at start-up unless you
explicitly evaluate it yourself. But you can easily extend it to include
as many different key-bindings as you like. This will only have effect
in the buffer that is visiting a .R (or .S file).
