This module will allow you to add your own view modes on top of the ones Drupal gives you by default.

The Drupal 7 Conditional Fields module makes it easy to build dynamic and complex forms with Drupal 7 Fields. Any Drupal entity that has fields can pretty much be built into a dynamic and conditional form. The Conditional Fields module essentially lets you set conditions for how specific fields act based on another dependent field on the form. The simplest example is that this module can hide or show a field based on the value of another field. If you are still confused at what this module can do, watch the video to find out more!

The Drupal 7 Entity Reference Multiple Display Module extends the Entity Reference module by allowing you to differentiate the display anytime you are referencing multiple entities from one Entity Reference field. For example, if you reference 3 entities, you may want to display the first entity as the full entity, and the next two entities as teasers. This module allows you to do just that.
