Switching is something you do to working copies, not files.
Switching changes your working copy to match a different repository URL.

Yes, that will make a branch/copy of b.txt.

You don't.

You can't get that behavior from Subversion. (Though I would like it
too! So you can have shared files, like VSS.)

The closest thing is to have folders coming from different repository
paths, using the svn:externals property.
