Bernina artista 200, how do i control the feed dogs?

Not sure what you are asking. The stitch length will determine how far the feed dogs travel (thus pulling the fabric) to create each stitch. There is also the foot (or knee) control that determines the speed that the machine runs.

The page 21 of the manual has that information:

Bernina artista hoop not recognized

Calibrate the embroidery hoop

The embroidery hoop can only be calibrated with the oval hoop.. You'll find the instructions for each machine in the relevant user manual.

Machine says that I don't have an embroidery hoop attached, but I do.

First turn off and disconnect embroidery unit and hoop from the machine. Plug machine back in and connect the embroidery unit only and turn the machine on. Reattach the hoop and test to make sure it's secure. Your hoop might not have been attached snuggly enough or you might need to put on the small hoop.

Feed dog won't come back up after embroidery is done and ready to sew normal. How to fix it?

You must slide the feed dog up/down switch over (consult your manual).

If you slide the switch over, the feed dogs will not come up. It is only when the machine makes a full rotation that the mechanism engages and the feed dogs return to the sewing position.

If the feed dogs will still not raise, then you will need to take it to your dealer.
