You want to have different templates depending on the Portal Type?

CMF HEAD has Method Aliases to do that:

   'folder_contents': 'folder_contents' (or empty)
   'folder_contents': 'my_folder_contents'

In CMF 1.3 or 1.4 you could use a python expression for the 'Folder 
contents' Action that links to 'folder_contents' or 'my_folder_contents' 
depending on the Portal Type. But I'm afraid folder_contents is 
hard-coded in some places so that might not help you.
