For any N circle times N-type bipartite system with even N > 2, two-parameter continuous families of unital block-dephasing quantum channels and of weakly optimal entanglement witnesses are constructed from special forms of a parametrized positive map. The parameter domains of the families are complementary subsets of a convex set and this fact reveals unusual combination rules of quantum channels and entanglement witnesses. These rules make it possible to develop many physically implementable direct entanglement-detection methods that provide a unified framework to accomplish both information-processing and entanglement-detection tasks by means of smooth quantum channels, without any reference to entanglement witnesses.
