Is there a hotkey or shortcut to change the type of the active transform manipulator?
This site lists
- CtrlAltG for translate
- CtrlAltR for rotation
- CtrlAltS for scale
none of which work for me. Are these the correct current shortcuts?

First what you linked to is for blender version 2.37 not 2.73, so the shortcuts are wrong.
To add a shortcut to switch the manipulator type; open up the user preferences.
Under the Input tab add a new shortcut under 3D View > 3D View (Global). Type
view3d.enable_manipulator in to the identifier field, then just check one of the grayed out boxes for Translate, Scale, and Rotate. The only hard part will be finding 3 unused shortcuts to use for the new transform manipulator shortcuts.
Other transform manipulator shortcuts:
Ctrlspace is the default shortcut to toggle on and of the transform manipulator.
Altspace open a menu to change the orientation type.
When using the buttons in the 3D view header, holding Shift allows for more then one manipulator type to be active at a time.
