Yes, you could use a conditional controller to select the appropriate sampler.

If by "distributed" capabliity you mean client-server mode: that won't help.

Separate thread groups could be used to exercise different samplers,
but the ordering would be unpredictable.

JMeter does not provide dynamic sampler types.
Given that different types need completely different settings, I don't
see how that could work.

However you can use dynamic variables to provide the required settings
for each sampler, so in theory you can use a conditional controller to
select the sampler.

The Switch Controller is one possible method and may be simpler to set
up than multiple If Controllers.
But it needs a numeric parameter.
If you don't want to be restricted to numeric sampler types, you could
use a scripting preprocessor or function to convert textual sampler
types into a number.

I suggest you experiment with the Java Request Sampler (use different
labels for different dummy samplers) to see how you you get on.
