You have to do define a pagestyle.
For example,
\def\ps at firstpage{%
\textwidth=xx,\textheight=ab% etc
You can also set the headers and footers within this. 
You can invoke this page style by the command
I suppose by package, you mean a .sty file.
I have modified the book.cls to create my own class
 and I have used the commmand above to have a different first page.
I have not tried it in a package. You can try it out.
 May be someone else with more expertise will be able to clarify.  
With best regards,
S. Venkataraman.
