```I don't see any direct way to do it merely by specifying the Filling
option. But the following will accomplish what you want.

Plot[{
Exp[-(x - 3)^2], Exp[-(x - 5)^2],
Piecewise[{{Exp[-(x - 5)^2], x <= 4}, {Exp[-(x - 3)^2], x >= 4}}]
},
{x, 0, 10}, Filling -> {3 -> Axis},
FillingStyle -> Opacity[0.25, Lighter@Blue],
PlotRange -> All]
