Donot you think it is reasonable to use different functionals for a system
?  Only if you can give the reasons, i donot think it is a serious work.
You can try to build a pw91 pseudopotential referring to that for pz
situation,and do a series tests on it. And you can aslo have a look at
Professor Vanderbilt's pseudopotential library for a  luck.
