Is this even possible? If your collection is called test-python36, it
will live in another directory hierarchy than rh-python36 and will not
be able to access the packages from there. I think you're in for a
world of pain.

You can of course start a new collection by renaming everything in the
rh-python36 package sources, picking up just the packages you need,
thus creating a new, derived collection.
