 You can use 'Artifact Templates' to define the default sections for an artifact. When creating a new artifact, use the custom template to seed the artifact's initial content. See this for reference:

However, QM will continue to show available sections in the Manage Sections. As Paul pointed out, if the user's role doesn't have permission to create/remove sections from the artifact, the save would fail for the user when attempting to modify the artifact's sections.

QM currently doesn't provide mechanism to create mandatory section contents. Artifact categories and custom attributes do have 'required' value capability.
