} I am not sure what do you mean. Several modules in one shared object?

No, not several modules in one shared object.

On some platforms (I'm not sure what proportion) it's possible to link
two shared objects that have a dependency such that when one of them is
dynamically loaded, the loader discoveres the dependency and also loads
the second shared object.  E.g. libXt depends on libX11, so if the final
binary is explicitly linked with -lXt it is implicitly linked with -lX11
as well.  This does not mean that libXt and libX11 are the same .so.

} I still hope to find some automatic way to replace all variables with
} functions.

The difficult part is replacing assignments with calls to set the value.
I can think of a way using setup-time function calls and static decls to
(relatively) automatically deal with read-only access, but it's going to
take a search of the code and hand editing to fix assignments.
