    Is there a way to have categories (or something) that when I choose one it automatically calls the featured image and website url (and other information) for that category?

    Here is a discussion about how to display the category description that you can set on the Dashboard > Post > Categories page for each category.

    And the function reference: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/category_description

    I don't think you can set a featured image for a category in the same edit screen. What method were you planning to assign images to categories?

    Thank you for your reply.

    I know how to display category description and also how to set a category image, not however how to add other information like an URL and such. But I found something that could maybe do that, I think it's "taxanomies".

    I haven't used such things before, so it will take a while to figure it out. But I will try.

    Yes, you can do that with a custom taxonomy. Here is a good resource that might take you through what you need:
