This is pretty rough, but I think it might be basically what you want.
par(mar=c(6,2,2,6))
plot(rnorm(20),rnorm(20),axes=FALSE,xlab="",ylab="")
axis(2)
axis(3)
par(new=TRUE)
par(mar=c(4,4,4,4))
plot(rnorm(10),type="l",col="green",axes=FALSE,xlab="",ylab="")
axis(2,col="green")
axis(3,col="green")
par(new=TRUE)
par(mar=c(2,6,6,2))
plot(rnorm(12),pch=2,col="red",axes=FALSE,xlab="",ylab="")
axis(2,col="red")
axis(3,col="red")
