So, based on $choice1, it seems that you want to set $opt1 and $opt2. Is that correct?

Such that,
user types in a 1
1 is stored to $choice1
therefore, programming to store "app1" to opt1 and "TEA1" to opt2
(and similar for the other three possibilities)
do some UNSPECIFIED file changes
then execute a command /usr/local/... $opt1 $opt2
