Using the Advanced custom fields plugin:

1) I want to post to the ACF and use a category just like a regular blog post, but the URL would be: mysite.com/customPost/category/post-name

Is this possible? And how can I do it?

2) Can I add a custom page template to each category page?

For #1, I think what you're looking to do is add Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies, which isn't possible via Advanced Custom Fields alone. Custom taxonomies are your own versions of either categories or tags.

If you want to use a plugin to create the post types and taxonomies, you could use something like Custom Post Type UI. That would get you where you need to go with the URLs.

For #2, yes, you can have custom templates for each category (aka taxonomy) archive page. You could use taxonomy-your-category-name.php to achieve that. See the full hierarchy list for more details.

You could use these in conjunction with ACF, as well.
