A the current versions.

We will have to see about those four new versions that they announced today. It may be a little more difficult since the 2k and the 2001K will have four engines. But Airbus got a common rating with the 330 and the 340 so we will see.

See my earlier post for details on those new 737 models

it is like 747-200 and 747-400.
The same for old 737 and NG.
So a pilot can not fly 737-200 and 737-800 with the same type rating.

-200/300 rated pilots can fly the 737NG series without a special rating. However the airline and/or local CAA may require that they do so with only one type of display on the NG - that is the one showing the round dials on the PFD which makes the cockpit look like a hybrid -200. This display is a bit confusing as you have the left screen featuring the Airspeed indicator, artificial horizon and HSI, while the right screen is split in two with the map occupying the right two thirds of the screen, while the left third you have the altimiter on top and rate of descent dial beneath it.
