It should be possible. Just make sure that you don't update the gcc
package (this points to the default compiler) but install gcc-3.3 (or
whatever) from testing. 

As far as I can see, this will lead to an update of the libc from
2.2.x to 2.3.x, though. This in turn does lead to an upgrade of other
packages that depend on the libc version. But if you already installed
binary packages from testing, it is likely your libc was upgraded
already. Otherwise, you might find a back-ported version of gcc-3.3 on
www.apt-get.org (these packages are unoffical).

And a last hint: If you use an entry in the apt config files like 

  APT::Default-Release "stable";

to be able to access testing and stable in parallel, don't use
aptitude for selective upgrades, that wants to install a lot of
recommended packages also (by default?). apt-get seems to install
only the necessary packages.
