To answer my own question and help others - in order to achieve this you do 
the following:

say you have a HTML structure for an FCE like this

<div class="root">
<div class"">
dummy content

now map up the attribut "class" and set editing type to "selection" and save 
the DS/TO.

Afterwards edit the xml structure of the DS and edit the selection, TV will 
automatically create 3 select options for you. Just change the number of 
select options to the number you need and write in the class names you 
subsequently want to select in the FCE.

Then, when insterting the FCE on a page the select option will hold the 
class names et voila there you go.....
