You could attempt this but not with ADA or any other soil that leeches Ammonia.  You could do it with SLAqua, Controsoil or Brightwell if you wanted to.  

Generally, I just reset the tank and call it done.  


Same here.  I've been starting to do what wyzazz does.  Do a reset.  Having said that, you do need to plan ahead.  So, if you only plan to run your ADA soil for 2yrs I'd start a new tank a couple of months before you hit the 2yr mark, and when it's ready just transfer the shrimps.  Maybe seed the new tank with a seasoned filter to speed up the cycling process.
