I guess you could hire all of them, just not all at the same time.Is there a reason a ruler can only hire one holy order at a time?
Both Templars and Hospitallers fought alongside each other in some battles in the Kingdom of Jerusalem.
While in Iberia by 1400, The Iberian Kingdoms had atleast 8 seperate military orders.
- Order of Montesa
- Order of Santiago
- Order of Calatrava
- Order of Saint John (Castile)
- Order of Alcántara
- Order of Sant'Iago da Espada
- Order of Aviz
- Order of Saint John (Portugal)
Since in a crusade usually here was more than a single Catholic kingdom involved, its very possible for one to hire the Templars and another to hire the Hospitallers.
Also, considering you often had 4-8 sovereign Catholic nations in Iberia at all times, if each of them patronised a different order you could almost represent all of orders that were based in Iberia.
Galicia - Santiago
Portugal - Aviz
León - Alcântara
Castille - Calatrava
Navarra - Belchite
Aragon - Montesa
Barcelona - Saint George
