I have a large matrix of 6000x10 arrays. I wanted to get some thing like 100 different 60x10 matrices. How can I do that? I can think of a method of cell2mat, in case I do that will I be able to add rows/columns in those cells?

YourArray = randi(9, 6000, 10);
subarrays = mat2cell(YourArray, 60*ones(1,size(YourArray,1)/60), 10*ones(1,size(YourArray,2)/10));
size(subarrays)
ans = 1×2
100 1
size(subarrays{1,1})
ans = 1×2
60 10

YourArray = randi(9, 6000, 10);
added_together = permute(sum(reshape(YourArray, 60, [], 10),2), [1 3 2]);
which is to say, do not break it into cell arrays if your plan is just to add them together.
If you need the call arrays for other reasons, then
added_together = sum(cat(3, subarrays{:}),3);
