WordPress. Different design for different pages within the same theme.

I need actionable advice.

I have a themed blog on Twenty Seventeen.
Initially, it was devoted to one topic, respectively, in the sections "Chat", FAQ, etc. there is a lot of information.
Its design, for example, the "header" picture, is also dedicated to the original theme.

Now we need to add a few more sections on similar topics, but the "title" picture in these sections needs a different one.
Also, these sections have their own "master pages" In the sense of pages that, of course, have internal addresses, but should behave the same way as the main one,
 - for example, the "header" picture should open completely.

It seems to be an obvious decision to make new blogs and somehow tie them with cross-links,
but "Chat", FAQ, technical sections of all these blogs should be the same (the ones that are now on the current blog).
Forwarding users to another blog is not the best option, people will just get confused ... Well, and all sorts of registration, plugins, etc.
So it's not really an option.

What can you advise if you do it with "little blood"
without deep intervention and re-layout of the theme, within one "standard template"?

Perhaps there are some tricky plugins or built-in functionality of WP itself?

If I understand your desire correctly, then for "new blogs" it is better to create custom content types and make your own template for each.
And in general, make a child theme.
All of these are "built-in functionality of WP itself", but there are different plugins to simplify working with them.

Well what can we say?
Learn css.
Or install a profile plugin, SiteOrigin CSS for example.
It remains then to modify a little by hand.

Probably worth explaining more...

There is a site.
A blog opens in its right frame.

The blog has (in WP terms) "Home" and sections: "help me!", "the works", "chat", "guides".

I need to make two more pages with a different header image, which will be with the same template as the current "home" page, but with a different image at the top (in the header).

Plus, when loading these two pages, the header image should also open in full, and the menu should lead to the same sections ("help me!", "the works", "chat", "guides") as now.

Two options:

1. Make a new template where the picture is located. In your case, most likely header.php.

2. With the help of php, you can replace images from one to another for certain pages.

Change the image using css - one line, without additional dancing.

Are you talking about the s-art website?
By the way, do you know that the right frame is not visible on the phone?

Yes, about this project.
I'll deal with adaptability a little later, there is the simplest topic, without unnecessary difficulties.
Now it is important to solve this problem.

There are no "partitions" in VP terms at all.
"Main page" in terms of VP - page. And she was chosen as the main one.
And "help me!" is a record. I suspect that the rest too (too lazy to check).
But here's what is under the "guides" and "templates" items - these are the headings (accordingly with the entries .. should be ..).
And if you want to have "exactly the same, but different" (c), then you need custom types.

In your case, most likely header.php.
Look at the theme code

I would be extremely grateful to you if you wrote what specific line, and in what CSS it should be inserted.
Unfortunately, I practically do not understand the structure of WP.

Yes, that's what frames were made for. =)

I have been looking for a functionality for a very long time that can replace the concept of a frame - smoothly change the width, so that there are no jerks and the mouse cursor did not fall off the "separator" and I would be very grateful if you could tell me how to do this using modern methods.

As soon as you show a specific page and give the image address.

Set the width of the left side strictly in pixels (X px), the width of the right side - (100% - X px) and specify the minimum width of 1px.
