hi,
you will need to add the units to your uses section and call registerclass with the form class names .
below is rough example ,you may want to save the s and check if its already exists or not..

{note the listbox contains:
TForm2
TForm3
TForm4
        }

implementation

{$R *.DFM}
uses unit2,unit3,unit4;

procedure TForm1.ListBox1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
i : integer;
s : string;
f : TForm;
c : TPersistentClass;
begin
registerClasses([TForm2,TForm3,TForm4]);
i := listbox1.ItemIndex;
s := listbox1.Items.Strings[i];
c := GetClass(s);
if c <> nil then begin
//here you may want to use a stringlist etc to
//check if s is being used currently
//
f := TComponentClass(c).Create(self) as TForm;
f.Show;
end;
end;
