    I would recommend at least getting current with the previews before you start brainstorming houserules that don't actually offer a meaningful change.

    Archetypes - as written - are all 'we make those things with the Dead, on general'. You do not need some one global organisation for having characters with common interests. Like Refinemnts in Promethean - they are much more philosophical ways of seeing life than common groups 'made in this and that year, by this and that NPC', like Covenants in Vampire are. Still, I really do not see reasons why 'people wanting Justice for Dead' or 'people wanting Knowledge from Dead' should not self create all over the world.
    Your krewe's Archetype is one of three different steps of the krewe creation process that defines it narratively as an organization. They literally don't exist except as umbrella categories for types of krewe. These are not abstract entities.
