CCS can indeed do this and there is example code in the "Common Questions
and Answers" section of your PCM manual.

See page 79 of your PCM/PCW manual (rev. July 1999) or the section named
"How can I use two or more RS-232 ports on one PIC?" in your table of

Basically, you place the #use RS232 directive before any printf(), putc(),
getc() or kbhit() function invocation you use.

for example:

void MyTrivialFunction(void) {

#pragma use RS232 (baud=9600, xmit=PIN_B0, rcv=PIN_B1)
     printf("Hi, this is serial port 1 talking to a PC at 9600.\r\n");
#pragma use RS232 (baud=31250, xmit=PIN_B2,rcv=PIN_B3)
     printf("Hello, Mr. MIDI device, how are you this fine morning?\r\n");

would send, at 9600 baud, a message to a terminal listening to RB<0>.  It
would also send a message to a MIDI device listening on RB<2> at 31.250
