    Is it possible to vary character limit for a text area, based on if condition A or B was selected?

    If Condition A = A, then Character Limit = 500 else Character limit = 1000

    Unfortunately it is not possible to set character limit for a text area, based on conditions.

    Possible workaround is to create two Text Area fields inside of your form. First with limit of 500 Characters and second with limit of 1000 characters. Then you need to set conditional logic to hide/show field based on some condition.
