Not as weird as it seems.
Remember the islands were just a sub team to the WI, so if you lived in another country, eg. Clyde Walcott who moved to Guyana to coach:
http://www.espncricinfo.com/westindies/content/player/53211.html

then you were allowed to play for them so you could be considered for the WI.
In cricketing terms it would be like moving from county to county or zone to zone.

I do remember seeing Wes Hall opening bowling for TT in the Shell Shield in 71 or /and 72. He bowled from the northern end and Julien from the pavilion end. Actually, we won our first Shell shield when he played.

Correct, he was coaching in TT just like Weekes was coaching in Guyana.

In fact I think they named a league after Hall in TT.
