The Lanterns should be the easy to differentiate. Sinestro could throw out fear based constructs such as wicked looking blades and feral/savage looking alien beasts while Jordan uses more earth based tools and weapon constructs. If you are looking for a more technical answer, the different constructs can have different frame-rate, movement, screen-possession, and hit properties. They could make them as different as they want; for example, giving one distinct advantages as a ranged zoner and one distinct advantage at aerial rush-down tactics. They could also intentionally keep them similar with slight differences; for example, lanterns seem like they should be zoners so have Sinestro excel at controlling air-space with his alien constructs, while Hal excels at controlling the mid-short range space.

Sam: That there's some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.
