What I want is when the buffer asks me a value for property , I can also replace property name with some alternatives.

I tried the following code, but fails

(setq org-capture-templates
      '(("R" "Reference" entry (file+datetree "~/Dropbox/org/reference.org")
         "* %? (one sentence each
part)\n%^{^{Conclusion|default|come1}}p%^{Detail}p%^{Reason}p%^{Good_for_me}p\nEntered on %U\n %i\n" :prepend t
:kill-buffer t)

You can't do this with the t%^ template format strings. You can however call org-set-property when your template is constructed using the %(func) syntax. When called interactively org-set-property prompts for both the property and the value. Here's a simple example:

(setq org-capture-templates
  '(("P" "Property" entry
     "* %? %(call-interactively #'org-set-property)"))
