Suppose you have a variable -group-. Then 

egen rank = rank(uniform()), unique  
gen group2 = group[rank] 

creates such pseudo-groups. (The -unique- 
is paranoia, based on a worry that there 
might be ties in the random numbers.) 

However, you still need machinery
on top of this. 

In addition to what you mention, 
-permute- might help.
