Well (untested),

<dtml-let greetings="{'foobar_html': 'Cool! You are viewing foobar_html',
  'barfoo_html': 'More cool! You are viewing barfoo_html'}">
<dtml-var "greetings[_.string.split(URL,'/')[-1]]">

might get you somewhere useful, depending on what it is you really
want to do.  (You might want 'dtml-try' code in case the last path
element isn't in your array.)

There isn't any dtml-case type statement.

What fails about it?  I presume your 'AND/OR' means you have tried
both keywords and had similar failures.  The syntax is right
as far as I can see, though of course the AND case could never
evaluate to true in this specific example.

The way to write this in python would be (untested):

<dtml-if "_.string.split(URL,'/')[-2] in ('pornfolder','murder_todolist_folder')">

An AND case of this would be nonsensical.

Your remaining questions I will leave to others.
