작정 means making up your mind to do something. 결정 means more formal decision or making a choice between alternatives, whereas 작정 means an informal decision to do something or a plan thus made. (e.g. 나는 서울을 떠날 작정이야 = I am planning to leave Seoul). 작정해도 저렇게는… seems to be an ironic use describing someone acting very weirdly out of the expected norm. It means you wouldn't normally want to act that way, and even if you wanted to (= (그렇게 하기로) 작정해도) for whatever reason, you wouldn't go that (= 저렇게는) far.
