Nah, I follow TrueAlchemist's love triangle story but with my twist. Envy wants to do the heavy with Dante, Dante loves Hoenheim, Hoenheim cares shit about them (only platonic) but rather loved Trisha Elric instead. So Envy becomes envious of Hoe getting all the love from his desired bonkee!!!
Hohenheim transmutes air, thats what he fights with, hardend air. He puts his hands together softly and since his hands are already touching the air it does whatever he wants it to. Plus both he and dante/lyla don't need to create the lighting arcs when transmuting, witness dante in the church and all of hohenheims work. We have already seen transmutation arcs travel thru subtances to effect others. the pipes to scald lust and gluttony. Both dante and hohenheim are good enough to mask the arcs and transmit them through the air. Hence the odd seeming mechanics. Why you ask, cause they are better, they have both been around a long time they are just good.
In regards to hohenheims sin it is either pride or envy. I prefer pride as his sin but envy seems the more likely candidate. In response to the Hohenheim recognizing pride they said that homunculus can control their appearance as if growing. Pride could look very different now as opposed to then.

okay lets see where the show is now at.
Dante "He" who is lord and master of Homonculus now is within Lyla's body. There is another like Dante who can take possesion of a persons body. That body is currently Hoenheims. The perfum from Episode 41 was a means of masking the smell of rotten flesh and apparently Hoenheim was conceiling the smell before he left his sons and wife. If Dante is a representation of the devil then the entity within Hoenheim is of god. The church and relegion that Lyla is telling Rose is of a group that worshipped the one who fell.
*If i'm off about that last sentence feel free to vent.
I'm always late, cause I live to spread accurate information and that takes time to confirm. I only really care for speculation about the metaphysics of the show/ plot. Hence I sort of edit out slashfests and the like. No offense intended just I dislike faulty assumtions wandering around.
