Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to point all requests for a certain directory and all its possible subdirs to one documentroot.

So, for example, I get a lot of requests on many different subdirs here: domain.com/directory/and_all_possible_subdirs

Point to the index.php file that resides in domain.com/directory/

What to add in apache2.conf ?

I would use mod_rewrite for achieving your goal, that will be much easier. see http://www.phpriot.com/articles/search-engine-urls/5 for an example. You "misuse" the 404 condition that arises when entering a "wrong" URL an redirect the user to the wanted file/page.
