The documentation for this is at http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/notation/displaying-rhythms#polymetric-notation Denemo has some commands already for generating some of the LilyPond syntax needed for this sort of thing. The command "Apparent Time Signature" for example generates the syntax \set Staff.timeSignatureFraction = 3/4 which you will find documented above. This, together with the \times x/y syntax that the Arbitrary Tuplet command generates is enough for baroque scores where the bass has a different time signature to the solo part. For your purposes you will probably need quite a bit more of the syntax from that reference. Once you know what the LilyPond is that you want to generate then Denemo can be told to generate it - either using the simple "Insert LilyPond" commmands or with more elaborate methods using the Scheme window to generate new Denemo Commands. If you get to the point of knowing what the syntax is that you want (here the lilypond-u...@gnu.org list is *very* helpful) then I can help you create it from Denemo.
