What you describe is a feature rather than a fault.
You can't have two movieClips on the same layer (which is why the second to load replaces the first), and if you have one movie on top of another, you will never be able to click on the bottom one. You need a button, or clickable movieClip, (it could be the whole movieClip itself) on both that will make the other visible (._visible = true) and itself invisible (._visible = false). Or you could use some sort of 'tabbed' link idea (like in diaries or file-o-faxes) as only content in one movieClip will mask the one underneath.
Idealy I would like them to behave like Windows on a pc, (click on one to bring to the front)
Then you'll have to offset their positions so you can always see at least a part the bottom one, then you should be able to click on it.
Use the MovieClip.swapDepths() method.
This changes what level a movie clip sits at or swaps it with a specific other clip.
