Well, it is not what you are looking for, but just in case... I have two custom settings in the Terminal, one named "LOCAL" and another "SSH mymachinename", with completely different color settings (back/green, white/black) to help me know where I am.
I also changed the default Title of the tab/window for each setting, and on the SSH setting, in the "Shell" tab I put "ssh root@..." as a command to run on startup (I work almost exclusively on one remote machine, but you could duplicate this for more machines of course).
If you right-click the Terminal icon on the Dock you can directly open a Terminal with the appropriate settings for the session.
Also, I use Spaces (Desktops) and open the terminal for the SSH session on, say, Space 4, and the Local terminal on Space 3.
