I have looked over your PlatformPro installation and hoped I would see a template selector on a page basis. Alas, none was to be found. My memories of PlatformPro are thinner than my remaining three hairs atop my head.
In PageLines Framework, when creating a new page, there is a template selector, letting you select one of multiple templates available. These templates may be laid out exactly as your email describes, and there are category and archive templates, specifically that may be modified. My apologies for my memory, which seemed to merge the end of PlatformPro with the early days of Framework.
PlatformPro doesn't afford you the opportunities to modify templates. You just can't, unfortunately, select an option to hide things as one can in Framework. Even custom CSS won't hide the slider on category or abstract pages.
Since the new build is going to be coming July 24th, and you've determined to wait for that, then you may simply wish to wait to achieve these goals when you're rebuilding the site. All the functionality you desire will be included.
