1) If the vendor A is a Goods Supplier (meaning the material is manufactured in a different country to where it is invoiced), you will need to set up another vendor A for the GS (It does not need bank information). The Goods Supplier will then appear in the Schedule Agreement/PO's.
Then modify the original vendor B in the vendor master record, select Partner functions - Type in GS in Partner and the number for the new vendor A you created for the Goods supplier. The GS will then appear in the Schedule Agreement/PO's.
Now if you are paying to vendor B, maintain B as invoicing party in the vendor master record of B.
2) In case B is just an invoicing vendor, Just create a vendor master record for B and maintain B as invoicing party in the vendor master record of A in partner functions.
Caution: Partner functions are controlled through account groups and partner schemas in customization.

If a PO is created on a vendor, and you are doing IV then system proposed the same vendor in IV. If you want separate invoicing party then you need to change under details tab. In case the vendor doesnt exist in the company code in which you are doing IV then system asks to enter invoicing party.
And you can enter alternate payee to original vendor under payment transactions tab in vendor master which will be useful if payment has to go to different vendor (in APP)

This can be solved using partner function.
In vendor master record, purchasing organisation data, enter partner function PI (Invocing party), vendor number (vendor B) and save.
During invoice system will ask the user to select the invoicing party where you can select vendor B.
