Branching is always possible and always equally cheap regardless of
what you did before, because it breaks down to a cheap copy operation
with preserving history. The only thing which may cost time is
updating/checking the new branch out.

If you have merge problems because of your tests or whatever one
solution may be just recording merge info. This way you can move and
copy and delete things in any way you like and make subversion think
that those changes are already applied to a selected directory without
really applying them, meaning you won't get any merge conflicts now or
later from the revisions you recorded as already merged. This may
prevent re-creating your repo and losing history.
