Dynamic SQL is the correct method to develop an application which has 'DISASTER' inscribed all over it.
Your description is very vague, and from what I get from it you seem to have re-invented a feature which already exists in PL/SQL, albeit in packages, called 'Overloading'
You would need to present much more detail (as well as a database version) to find out why you have a desire to end on the electrical chair or to make the life of your potential customers miserable.
