What you ask for a common scenario. Sadly, as of now there is no way to do it out of the box in JIRA.
There might be some plugins as well available for it. But there is no clear way of implementing it.
There is an open tickedt as well for it - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-16683
My suggestion to you it to put the issues at the end of the issueType scheme. You can edit the scheme and drag the type to the end and don't make have it as default as well.
Now, if the type isn't shared by another project then you can "deprecate" it by adding "Deprecate" in the issuetype name (but this can affect the existing filters)
Or you can add a workflow validation on the "create" transition which returns "false" if the type of the issue == X (the type which you want to archive and no longer use)
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
