    You would have to write a plugin for that. See the codex for info on writing plugins.

    "would like to add a input field for a thumbnail for the article"

    Check out any of the magazine themes. many of them do this. It;s just adding a custom field for the thumbnail.

    Or, there's a plugin called "get the image" which will auto-pull the first image in a post and display it as a thumbnail.

    "or a teaser...."

    Built in already. Use the excerpt.

    "and i need as requirement for each post"

    That's the sticky part. The only requirement for a post in WP is content.
