You would need to manually create the parts. The following assumes
groups have numerical values 1, 2 and 3 and group 3 does not need
the fitted line (but is not tested!):

 twoway (scatter y x, if group==1) (lfit y x, if group==1) ///
        (scatter y x, if group==2) (lfit y x, if group==2) ///
        (scatter y x, if group==3)                         ///
        (scatter y x)              (lfit y x)              ///
  legend(label(1 "Group 1 data")   label(2 "Group 1 fit")  ///
         label(3 "Group 2 data")   label(4 "Group 2 fit")  ///
         label(5 "Group 3 data")                           ///
         label(6 "All data")       label(7 "All fit") )

You likely would want to name these better and would have to 
play around with symbol and line colors.
