Adjusting column count for single legend item using Arcpy

I know you can adjust the column count for the whole legend with the method adjustColumnCount(), but I am wondering if you can adjust the number of columns for a single legend item instead of the whole legend? I am creating a custom print task where users can select what layers they want to include and how to symbolize them - if they choose to symbolize it in a certain way (they choose a particular renderer), I would like to be able to split that layer into two columns in the legend. There is a different instance where if they choose a different renderer for the layer, it does not need to be split into two columns. Telling what renderer they choose is easy, it's figuring out how to apply a column count to a specific legend item that I'm not sure how to do.
