Gauginos are spin-1/2 fermions, and they don't carry forces like the W and Z bosons do. They aren't connection coefficients, they don't superpose to macroscopic fields.

There is never a complete symmetry between bosons and fermions, even in a supersymmetric theory. The fermions are fermions and the bosons are bosons, they have completely different physical properties. The supersymmetry transformation is not like a spatial rotation--- it isn't as physical. If you rotate a sock, all the particles in the sock rotate. If you super-rotate a sock, it becomes a superposition of rotating one-particle at a time of the sock. Most of the sock stays the same, but one constituent is turned to its superpartner, and there is a quantum superposition over which constituents are flipped. The result is still mostly the original sock.

This is analogous to the notion of an infinitesimal generator, since an infinitesimal transformation acts on products one factor at a time. The SUSY transformations can be thought of as permanently infinitesimal, because their parameter squares to zero.

Supersymmetry tells you for each particle that the scattering amplitude of a boson is simply related to the scattering amplitude of the fermion. This relation is particle by particle. So supersymmetry just isn't a symmetry of objects, at least not in a useful classical sense. So in your example of the reversed heirarchy, the Higgs mechanism would still give W's and Z's a mass.
