use a DPDT switch and wire it up so that the 2 center pins go to the load, and then the outer ones are for power in. When the switch is one way, the center pins connect to + and -, but when the switch is turned the other way, the center pins connect to - and +. Just google DPDT schematic polarity switch

What you need is a SPDT-CO switch (Single Pole, Dual Throw, Center Off, Sometimes referred to as a SPTT with center off). This switch has three positions. The middle is off, left passes the input to circuit A, and right passes the input to circuit B.

I can't really follow you here...
Do you mean something like forward and reverse on a motor?
Or switching two different lights from one battery?
