Curve fit based on minimal data

I have 6 curve types

enter image description here

that follow these rules:

  • Type A: If point 1 is positive and point 2 is negative, the curve will not pass through the origin.
  • Type B: If point 1 is negative and point 2 is positive, the curve will pass through the origin twice.
  • Types C-F: If both points are positive or both points are negative, the curve will pass through the origin once.

The curves are basically partial (and skewed to some degree) limaçons:

What is known:

  • The coordinates of points 1 and 2.
  • The slopes at points 1 and 2.
  • The approximate curve type (limaçon).

What is not known:

  • The arc length.
  • The degree of skew.

Data for A-F:

(* A *) {{0.000564367, 0.690525}, {-0.000689501, -0.984192}, 2.75153, -1.82771}
(* B *) {{-0.000689501, -0.984192}, {0.000664785, 1.07289}, -2.10116, 1.9517}
(* C *) {{0.000179304, 1.61576}, {0.0000936314, 0.852042}, 1.08897, 3.98758}
(* D *) {{0.000116063, 0.431337}, {0.000443491, 1.70111}, 2.63092, 1.50293}
(* E *) {{0.0000347276, 0.190688}, {0.000190634, 1.06651}, 7.04831, 2.28105}
(* F *) {{-0.000432719, -1.90935}, {-0.000142565, -0.645011}, -1.44646, -1.79681}

in format: {{point 1}, {point 2}, slope @ point 1, slope at point 2}

Is it possible to estimate a curve fit (and hence arc length & skew) with only the data given?

Note

These slopes are not terribly accurate! Accuracy can be improved, but at a cost.
