Field "Control Style" based on related field selection?

Situation:

I have a Question_type field that is auto-filled in, depending on the test, on what type of question it is. The two types are multiple-choice and fill-in.

 

Obstacle:

Is it possible to have the Control Style of a field (the Question_Answer field) change in the layout based on what the Question_type field has in it? Multiple-choice is Radio Button (which I have scripted to use the specific Value List for that question's possible answers) and Edit box for the fill-in.

 

I imagine I could use hide field function to have two separate fields, but then I would need one field to fill in the other field. Is that the best route and just make the fields equal to each other within the same table somehow?
