conditional checkout

I’m trying to set up a mobile phone dealer shop using Magento and I need the following feature:

If the customer is buying a contract deal then I need to capture customer details to do credit checking (name, address, employment etc). If they are not buying any contract products (phone only, accessories) then I don’t want the customer to have to give me all this information. So I need multiple checkout dependent on products in the basket.

Even if the multiple, conditional checkout is not possible, I need to change the checkout process so that I can capture the credit check information by putting a note on the checkout page to tell the customer that ‘Please provide this information if you are buying a contract product.’

Is this possible in Magento out of the box? If not where would I start in implementing this?
