Subject says it: I want to build custom menu through appearance->menus and use them instead of pages/categories menus.
Is it possible (Atahualpa 3.6.7) ?

Yes - just create/build them using Wordpress.

Then, in the Wordpress Menu's page - Theme Locations

What you put in

Menu 1 = Page Menu in ATA
Menu 2 = Category Menu in ATA

Edit: - Interestingly, this used to be documented on the ATO->Header Area->Menu 1 and Menu 2 Setup pages but it doesn't seem to be now...

I am not quite sure what you mean but the difference now is that if you use the WordPress menu there does not need to be a defined page or category menu. You can put a page, post, or category in as a menu item now.

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
I just went back to 3.5.3 and at ato->MENU 1 (Page Menu)->Home link in Page Menu Bar there was the text

Recommended: Since you're using WP 3+: Use the new WP menu system, see Appearance → Menus on the left. Create a menu there and add it to Menu Location → Menu 1. Once you've done that this setting here and the next few settings become obsolete. (The Javascript animation and the style settings at the bottom of this page still work).

this was removed in 3.6.4 - the issue is how long do you leave notices in the theme about changes. If they stay forever, things will become cluttered.

Thanks everyone.
Apparently my client had disaster due to leftover PHP hardcodings within Atahualpa settings.
Once upgraded - s*** hit the fan.

I resetted header/menu settings to defaults and while losing some CSS - we managed to restore menu via wordpress custom menus.
