    4R = 4"x6" = 4:6 = 2:3

    5R = 5"x7" = 5:7

    does it mean we have to switch between 4:3 & 3: 2 depending what size we want to print?

    Set the camera to 3:2, then crop as necessary before printing. This way you don't have to fiddle around with switching settings during your shoot. 3:2 prints nicely on 4R (4x6"), 6R (6x9") and S8R (8x12").
