You can use conditional markup to test page text variables.
You can use conditional markup in custom edit forms.
So you could crate an edit form like this:

(:if equal {{*$FullName}$:EditForm} Blog:)
input controls for blog edits go here...
(:if equal {{*$FullName}$:EditForm} Comment:)
input controls for comment edits go here..
other controls....

and add to your blog pages (:EditForm:Blog:)
and your comment pages (:EditForm:Comment:)

which will show customised edit forms when opening the pages.

This is not linking to categories though. Because that would require a
link check for conditional markup. We have not got that.
