It has been officially explained by Riot that Yordles have what is dubbed the "Peacock complex". The male yordle is responsible for attracting the female, and so there is a great variety in colour and appearance of male yordles. The females do not have to work for their mate, and so can take on more generic appearances. This explains why Poppy, Lulu and Tristana can look so similar, yet Teemo and Ziggs are different.
Veigar is believed to be a normal yordle, similar to Teemo (they have identical noses), he just never takes his hat off or his shroud of darkness, so we may never know for sure what he looks like. Heimerdinger and Corki are older yordles, and seem to have lost some of their fur, although Heimer underwent a mutation that puts the normality of his appearance into question. Fizz isn't a yordle, but his race is said to be related or similar in some way. Kennen is also a Yordle, I remember a Red saying he was a yordle.
In any case, yordles are meant to look different, you're not going to get two yordle males that look the same, I Garentee it. You want to know the reason Teemo has so many different skins? It's to attract more females, it's been admitted. So yeah, nothing too special about it.
And differences in ears are a different matter, creatures that have been changed or ascended by magic usually end up with these physical differences. Janna, Lulu, Morgana and other champions have elf ears, and there are other changes aside from that. The ears thing is likely just magic, not to do with yordle physiology.
