I'd say trivial, once you figured out how (with basic sysadmin skills).
Win*: no idea.
Continuing for *nix...
As for the figure out part, for TBB stable, see:
Should be also helpful with little modification:
For TBB Alpha, notice that:

You don't need to modify any TB (Tor Browser) socks settings, if you
open a local Tor SocksPort 9150 in torrc. And for ControlPort, just open
a Tor ControlPort on 9151.

127.0.0.1:9150 and 9151 and forwarding to other IP/port can do the trick
Not sure what you want to do, but I am quite confident I can help out
due to my experience of getting Tor Browser to run in Whonix, where Tor
is running on a separate machine.
