Question: Can you display headline & featured block to each category and sub-category with different content like Arthemia already have on frontpage?
Answer: There is of course a way.

WordPress takes in Arthemia theme the file archive.php if you select any kind of archive.
To get a special view for categories you could duplicate the archive.php and call it category.php. Then wordpress will take that file for category view and you can change this file to fit your requirements.
Now, lets say you duplicate index.php and call the new file category.php, WordPress will take that file to view the category with headline and featured as on frontpage.
If you want only one certain category being displayed different only you can even check the ID of that category and name the new file category-6.php or category-2.php etc.
see: codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates for more information on wordpress templates.
Now the question which post should be the Headline for a Category?
There are multiple ways to query a certain post from the current category, be it by title of the post, or a post with a custom field or the latest post (easiest) etc.
I decided to query for the very first post in that category, this means the oldest on. Now it’s possible to create a headline post lust by giving it a publishing date older than the first post in that category.
I used the index.php of Arthemia Theme (not Arthemia Premium!) and modified only the queries for Headline (oldest post of category) and modified the query of posts being displayed below to run like normal archive view, eg. newest (latest) post on top.
I copy the content of arthemia theme category.php here and give you the link to that file as text file what you can find here –link disabled, file removed–
