I'm not sure to understand what you want to do, because if it's load-balance 2 websites on the same machine, what's the point? Load-balancing is mean to share the load, and the load is handle by servers, if you share the load between resources of the same
server, the load on the server is the same, even more..

There are 2 ways to load balance your websites. a) configure a web farm but YES! you need multiple servers.
b) Use a hardware load balancer but here also YES you really need more then one webserver.
If your 1 webserver goes does, both sites go down. If your IIS goes down, again both sites will so there is no benefit from load balancing 2 or more sites on only 1 webserver.
