>>>Is their a method to get most things to Zope/Plone but certain folders to go
to ColdFusion.<<<

Does ColdFusion have an API which can be called from Python or Perl? Does it 
have an XML-RPC, SOAP or other web API interface? If so then you could write a 
Zope External Method in Python or Perl that runs ColdFusion using the latter's 
API. You will be able to pass in the parameters that you need from Zope, and 
return ColdFusion output to display in Zope. 

For instance, I run a simple example of this approach at 
http://jonathanmark.com:8080/Cheetah/callUseCheetah on a Zope 2.10 server. the 
Zope Python Script callUseCheetah acquires the names of members of the Byrds 
rock group. It acquires these names from a lines property of the Zope folder 
Cheetah. (Cheetah is not just a folder name, it is also the name of a Python 
templating engine.)

callUseCheetah then calls the Zope External Method useCheetah to render the 

The template engine Cheetah returns the rendered page to Zope which displays 
the names in the title of the page.

Here is the the Zope Python Script callUseCheetah:

# code to get 'htmlpage' goes here...
htmlpage = context.html
# now extract the body
body = context.useCheetah(htmlpage, context.name)
# now do something with 'body' ...
print body
return printed
