You can customize the form as specified in cms_form docs. cms_notification extends the form behavior allowing you to just provide the fields you need and a mapping between fields and messages' subtypes.

class CMSNotificationPanel(models.AbstractModel):
    _inherit = 'cms.notification.panel.form'

    enable_my_type = fields.Boolean(
        string='Enable my type notifications',
        help=("If active, you will receive notifications "
              "about this type.")
    enable_my_type2 = fields.Boolean(
        string='Enable my type 2 notifications',
        help=("If active, you will receive notifications "
              "about this type 2.")

    def _form_subtype_fields(self):
        res = super(CMSNotificationPanel, self)._form_subtype_fields
            'enable_my_type': 'module.mt_mytype',
            'enable_my_type2': 'module.mt_mytype2',
        return res
