As the achievement states, you must be playing Arrange B mode. I recommend attempting this while both gauges are full. You begin each stage with both gauges full, so early in a stage is an easy time to do this. However, you can do this anywhere.

How to do it:

Use a hyper by holding the Bomb/Hyper button. This will empty one of your gauges. While the Hyper is active, you must refill the gauge you used to activate the Hyper so they are both full again. If you do this before your Hyper ends, you can tap the bomb button to use a free bomb.

EDIT - Tips:

To make it easier to refill your gauge after activating your Hyper, collect bee items and gold stars. They add to your gauge. Also use the laser a lot, that seems to help. Finally, do not use the Hyper Custom option before starting. This shortens the duration of your Hyper and makes this achievement more difficult to obtain.

EDIT - Additional Info:

Your Bomb/Hyper button has two functions:
Hold Bomb/Hyper to activate Hyper
Tap Bomb/Hyper to Bomb

Either function requires a full gauge to activate. Please note, "tap" means to quickly press and immediately release a button. You cannot hold the Bomb/Hyper button down or it will think you are trying to do a Hyper. Even holding for a half-second is way too long.
