I like the idea, but my opinion is more like TokyoVigilante's: it would've been cool in the early 90s when BFE was fresh in the minds of fans and moviegoers alike, but now in 2012 there's really no point. So you have a good idea, just 20 years too late!
That might've even worked out nicely for the debut film in the RoM trilogy. None of those films were good or fresh enough to be worth keeping. I've done some RoM trilogy ideas for myself and do hope (possibly in vain) that Toho will give Mothra a new movie or two in the future.

Anguirus, like some of the other monsters, doesn't really have the cache to get his own movie, at least not these days. However, if they did some "prehistoric kaiju" movie then dinosaur-type kaiju like Anguirus, Gorosaurus, etc, could be thrown into the movie together.

The Gargantuas return, but so does Godzilla! Gaira and Sanda continue their fight, but then their sibling fighting gets the attention of Godzilla. Godzilla attacks Sanda and Gaira, but insted of the Gargantuas both teaming up, Gaira still attacks Sanda. Godzilla starts just beating Gaira without mercy, and Sanda attempts to save his brother, but Gaira still attacks Sanda. Godzilla slams Sanda to the ground and continues his attack on Gaira as Sanda watches from the ground. Finally Sanda gives up and decides to flee back into the mountains and go to Mt. Fugi. As he tries to escape, his foot accidently dislodges a boulder that smashes into Godzilla's legs, bringing the radioactive lizard to the ground, giving Gaira a chance to get the upper hand. Gaira starts beating Godzilla and the two slam each other into buildings and such, eventually leading to a battle in the sea where Godzilla finally defeats Gaira. Godzilla then defeats him. Godzilla then comes back to land and travels to Mt. Fuji to take on Sanda, the two meet and Sanda attemps to tell Godzilla to calm down and tries to convince Godzilla not to attack, but he doesn't listen. The two fight and it ends with Sanda slamming Godzilla into the side of a mountain where he is buired by tons of rocks.
It would've been a fun ride in the 60s or 70s if they did it. These days it makes less sense. However, if this is supposed to have continuity with the Frankenstein-Gargantua saga, keep in mind that the Gargantuas are puny compared to Godzilla. They're literally half the size and I suspect Gaira wouldn't be able to do a whole lot of damage to Godzilla overall, even with Sanda's help. I mean it looks like your idea does show Gaira being at a disadvantage, but I suspect the gap in power between the two is more considerable. This is but my humble opinion.
On to my own idea, stupid or genius as it may be ...Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla: Onslaught of the Machines
Set many, many years in the future in a somewhat Terminator-esque world where a massively intelligent and powerful computer has become self aware, the world has been torn apart by war. Machines have taken over much of the world but mankind remains an endless thorn in the sides of the machines. In this advanced world the supercomputer(s) have been able to construct hyper-advanced weapons, vehicles, aircraft, and mechs to crush humans. Computers aren't perfect though, and there's another threat to their survival: Godzilla. Whereas the machines in this world harness vast amounts of nuclear energy, guess who else does? And Godzilla takes no sides, yet he's often attracted to the many nuclear plants "controlled" by the computers in Asia and western North America. The mechs sent out by the computer against Godzilla are powerful, but Godzilla truly is god-like in power. A high-power mech named Moguera fares better but remains inferior to Godzilla. Something much more significant is required for the sake of the machines. Using data collected on Godzilla, a powerful robot is constructed to match Godzilla's power and protect the machines.
Godzilla shows up to absorb the energy in one of the flagship nuclear plants in Japan, but Mechagodzilla (Mechagodzilla to the humans in the story, Anti-G 1 to the machines) distracts Godzilla and unleashes a truly amazing breadth of weaponry and brutal fighting techniques. A Uranium beam from the mouth even mimics Godzilla's own atomic ray. However, even the astounding armor utilized on Mechagodzilla is not immune to Godzilla's atomic ray, and Godzilla himself is mighty enough to physically battle Mechagodzilla. It eventually appears to be that Mechagodzilla has the firepower, but Godzilla has durability. Being an organic being is always an advantage in these movies too, right? Haha. In time, Godzilla eventually manages to disrupt or destroy some of Mechagodzilla's primary weapons, and with even moderately limited fighting power, it's enough to give Godzilla an edge.
For the human aspect of the story, the humans are able to take advantage of Godzilla's appearances and launch their own attacks. In the final battle with Godzilla and Mechagodzilla, a final onslaught with virtually all available weapons are used to destroy some key areas. This is of course taking place while the machines have launched their own attacks, so it's a risk for all sides. And for the record, the computers would be attempting to build increasingly powerful and complex mechs earlier in the movie to stop Godzilla before they finally decide on what becomes Mechagodzilla, so it wouldn't (hopefully) be a boring movie until the last third or so when MG comes onto the scene.
Thoughts? Don't be afraid to be critical. We're all Godzilla fans here. I sound like a broken record in Gunhed threads in regards to having wanted a futuristic Godzilla/Gunhed movie that was the original idea for what eventually was heavily changed and became Gunhed. And today I happened to think the machines would be a sinister origin for Mechagodzilla.
