The removeable shouldn't be mounted over the non-removeable.
First unmount the non-removeable and mount it on /home/peter1,
for example. Then mount the removeable on /home/peter.

The remount-followed-by-mount should be independent of login.
Similarly, if the removeable storage is removed, then the
non-removeable filesystem should be moved back to /home/peter,
for example. Anything for mounting specifically at login does not
appear to be appropriate. I imagine a script invoked by udev where
insertion of storage triggers remount-followed-by-mount and
removal triggers the remount.
