This is indeed possible and should be quite easy. One problem is that
I do not exactly understand the problem - how do you decide which all
to join and print? Is it ALA with 4th field as C or 6th field as 0.3?
The issue here is that I am not getting the context of your problem.
And I have *no* idea about the Chemical shift etc which you are
If you can explain it a little more, I will try something out.

Just for the scenario you explained, this code will suffice -
f = open('abcd')
d = {}
for line in f:
fields = line.split()
if fields[2] == 'ALA':
d.setdefault('ALA', {'position':fields[1], 'values':[]})
if fields[4] == 'C':
d['ALA']['values'].append({fields[3]:fields[5]})

print d

But i dont think this is what you want
