Templates cannot be setup and replicated between cycles, but you can setup different cycles running at the same time for each role. This still requires separate cycles - you'll need to set up two or more parallel performance review cycles for the same time period.
For example, you could create one review cycle for C-level executives, and one review cycle for the rest of the employees. Then you'd create different forms in the two different review cycles, so the C-level executives answer different questions than other employees.
