    I am a noob and would love to know how the experts would handle this.

    I am posting videos that need to be subdivided by subject and then subdivided again by topic (within that subject). Do I use custom fields? Custom post-types?

    When I display the video list, I want to display the SUBJECT NAME title once only at the top (the subject title), then display the TOPIC SUBHEAD once, then display the list of relevant video posts, then display the NEXT TOPIC SUBHEAD and its video posts. How do I control this in theme files?

    Seems to me that this could be handled with any hierarchical taxonomy. The built in ‘categories’ would probably do the job, but if you want to keep the video area separate from the rest of your blog, you could create a custom post type with its own custom taxonomy.

    Custom fields add an extra field to a post. You use it when you want to display extra information that does not go into the main text. So, custom fields would not help you solve your problem.
