When you need to customize behavior for certain paragraphs, then you need to know how to differentiate each Paragraph object.  One possible solution might be to store something in the Tag property that will let you identify the paragraph.

Ok.. I can add a TAG to the paragraphs... I'm creating the paragraphs in code.
How do I apply the above style to only those paragraphs  e.g  Tag like 'para_With_Formatting'?
thx

The Trigger behavior is dependent on the Paragraph.IsMouseOver property.  Are you asking for a combination trigger with Paragraph.Tag?

For multiple conditions, you would need a MultiTrigger:

<MultiTrigger>
      <MultiTrigger.Conditions>
        <Condition Property="Content" Value="a" />
        <Condition Property="IsMouseOver" Value="True" />
      </MultiTrigger.Conditions>
      <Setter Property="Visibility" Value="Collapsed" />
</MultiTrigger>

I get the following message...

Error      5      'Tag' member is not valid because it does not have a qualifying type name.

  <MultiTrigger>
                <MultiTrigger.Conditions>
                    <Condition Property="Tag" Value="paragraph_with_hyperlink" />
                    <Condition Property="IsMouseOver" Value="True" />
                </MultiTrigger.Conditions>
               <Setter Property="TextDecorations" Value="Underline" />
            </MultiTrigger>

Yes...
 <Style TargetType="{x:Type Paragraph}">
                 <Style.Triggers>
                    <MultiTrigger>
                        <MultiTrigger.Conditions>
                            <Condition Property="IsMouseOver" Value="True" />
                            <Condition Property="Tag" Value="paragraph_with_hyperlink" />
                        </MultiTrigger.Conditions>
                        <Setter Property="TextDecorations" Value="Underline" />
                        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Blue"/>
                    </MultiTrigger>
