For an arm specialization with the mid back idea, you might consider a split like:

Day 1: Arms/Legs

Day2: Torso

This way your arms can get hit every training day (directly and indirectly) and you...

The closest thing to an "advanced" HST was from a thread over 10 years ago on the HST site about "customization" -- i.e. the ability to take the vanilla template (after having run it a few times) and...

Overall, they looked all right from that angle. (I thought the 2nd rep was the best).

That's fine.

But realize that the seated calf raise the way you're doing it (the bar on the quads) is creating a leverage advantage compared to the seated machine raise where the resistance is...

You can see on some reps that you can't hold your postures, and round the upper back on the pull.
