Gravity Forms has a users plugin that lets you create user accounts from 
a custom form. Would be easy to set up several user types and use 
Gravity Forms conditional fields to show the appropriate ones. I'm sure 
you can do it with other form plugins and I've written custom solutions 
for this type of thing but GF is a pretty simple way to go.
