Yes I can help but your question is too general

I get the "choose between two queries"...but based on what condition?

In DTS you can make a choice between two tasks based on
The success status of a third task.
The result of some VB code.
The content of a record in a table.
You can execute a stored proc passing parameters and let the stored proc make the choice
etc etc etc.

Why must it be a single SQLTask?
If 3 or 4 tasks are necessary to achieve your desired result what does it matter?

I guess to answer your question in generic tems then a simple generic example might suffice
one way is just like you would make a choice in any language.
Useing TSQL syntax, something like this
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.    IF condition
  2.    BEGIN
  3.       trueSQLQuery
  5.       falseSQLQuery
  6.    END
