It's probably easier to disable TeX PDF mode for the document in
question and put the dvips and ps2pdf calls into `TeX-output-view-style'
along with a call to the viewer.  The variable allows you to specify a
package name which is used to activate an entry if the package is

Alternatively you could add a dvips+ps2pdf command to `TeX-command-list'
and call it between running LaTeX and starting the viewer.
