I suspect your line of thinking IS wrong. Ever notice the 'Frame'
select box in the content element? Based on your description, it
should probably be all you need. Try the following code and then
change the value of the 'Frame' select box in your content element:

### Add to TSconfig field in 'Edit page properties' form:
  tt_content {
    section_frame {
      removeItems = 1,5,6,10,11,12,20,21
      addItems.50 = Cow
      addItems.60 = Fish

### Add to 'Setup' field of main TS template:
tt_content.stdWrap.innerWrap.cObject {
  50 = TEXT
  50 {
    value = <div class="cow">|</div>

  60 = TEXT
  60 {
    value = <div class="fish">|</div>
