You need to edit the files in the /templates/ directory, and insert the appropriate PHP. It sounds like you want to put the entire template loop in the header, so I'd suggest that you start by looking at / copying from one of the index.php templates.
For more assistance, please post on http://buddypress.org/community/groups/achievements/ as I don't read the WordPress.org forums very often. Thanks.
