JMF - new question is a bit vague. You may find it more helpful to ask for suggestions of accompaniment for specific tunes. If anything useful to you comes out, you could then transfer it to similar styles of song.

There are various patterns of rolls, arpeggios, plucked chords and runs of notes which can be useful in accompaniments, but accompaniment is never "one size fits all...".
Certain techniques will suit one song, but not another. I tend to go with an approach of "If it works, use it. If it doesn't, try something else."

One of the attractions of a banjo is that often a very sparse accompaniment will enhance a song better than throwing the kitchen sink at it.
