I'm afraid there's not going to be any easy way (if there even is one). Windows handles print spooling and nearly every application will outsource printing to the OS spooler out of convenience.
Properties like paper type and paper source are exposed by the printer driver, and while they may be fairly common and standard on most printers today they aren't required to be supported in order for printing to work. This means that the default print dialogs don't expose them, thus explaining why you always have to click Properties to bring up your printer settings directly in order to change it. Printer driver settings are global, though, so unless your printer drivers themselves have some fancy per-application profile manager of some kind, no dice.
Maybe someone else knows of a third-party program of some kind?
