No. Templates do not have same relationship to a project that an object class has to an instance of that class. A template is just a pre-set starting point for a new project -- as soon as the project is created, there is no link between the template and the project, and you can immediately modify any and all settings of the project to make it look entirely different.
The easiest way to accomplish what you're talking about is to use one template to create a new project, make the necessary modifications, and then save it as a new "child" template. But if you later make a change to a "parent" template, you'll have to manually push that change back into all your other templates (either manually or by recreating them like you did the first time.) If you want that change to go into all of your existing articles that used those templates, you'll have to manually propagate that change into those articles.
Note that it would probably take you a long, long time to grow a single project to the point where you're having performance issues, especially if you take advantage of image references and don't store any images/screenshots inside of your Scrivener project. Scrivener only loads the component documents that you're actively viewing or editing, so if you structure your project as "one big template" and do it properly, you can avoid situations where Scrivener is having to open hundreds of documents at the same time.
