How can I change or customize search results for only some sorts of list items (belonging to a specific list) so that when you click on the result it does not open the list item but my application page?

  • How well versed are you in XSLT? You'll probably have to do some matching so that any result coming from your specified list has its own display template.

Take a look at Customize search result types in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2013 Design Manager display templates.

You could create a custom display template, perhaps using /_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_Default.html as your starting point, and change it so the links open your application page.

Then you could create a Result Type with a condition that matches your list, perhaps you can have it match the Path of your list, and an action that uses your custom display template.
