I am no particle or scripting expert (so I didn't respond when I first read your post), but I believe it should be possible to orient the instanced arrows with the vector that they are traveling in and make a second ptype emit sparks from the tips with an scripted event based on time and velocity (or any other variables)... just not versed in the application of it and unable to assist you in experimentation at this time.

Have you reviewed the commercial video tutorials available? Perhaps they have some insight that could assist you.
