Here's the citation Jqb12 requested:

6-7: The ball becomes dead, or remains dead, when:
Art. 5 An official’s whistle is blown (see exception below).
Art. 7 A foul, other than player-control or team-control, occurs (see exception below).
Exception: The ball does not become dead until the try or tap for field goal ends, or until the airborne shooter returns to the floor, when: Article 5, or 7 occurs while a try or tap for a field goal is in flight.

Depends on the backboard supports and how they're anchored.

What if it is intended to mean "intentionally slapping or striking the backboard so as to make the ring vibrate." In other words, making the ring vibrate was the intent of slapping the backboard. I honestly don't know how you can slap the backboard hard enough that you would consider a T, yet the ring wouldn't vibrate.

A player thinks "geez...I won't be able to actually touch the ball and block the shot, but if I hit the backboard with enough force that the ring vibrates, the ball may fall off and/or not go in....

I know that the debate has been had that it is very difficult to adjudicate a players intent, but just a thought. If this seems silly, someone please shut this line of thinking down very quickly!
I think the "or" is correct as is.

Simply slapping the backboard with no attempt to play the ball should be a T whether or not it causes the ring to vibrate. Some backboards are much more solidly attached than others.

Causing the ring to vibrate by other methods, in addition to slapping the backboard, would also be T worthy....such as slapping the ring itself (before the ball is there).

Good point. Thanks for the reminder.
