Hi Wim, 

I have seen something like that, but I dont know exactly how the trick

It was also structured FM. The graphics were all on the reference page
in individual frames.
On the master page, there was a textflow frame with a "normal"
paragraph, no variables (I think). You would have to see that the
setting for "Frame Above Pgf" is set to the specific frame on the
reference page with the graphic needed. 

As I said, I know it is possible, but there are some things missing here
that I do not remember. At the time I worked with the files, my focus
was only on the typesetting work. 

Another option:
Similarly, instead of using the reference pages, you may put all
graphics in a font (if possible). 
For the sinchronization of H/F appearance and related chapter (or
heading) you could use a marker in the heading with just the letter that
stands for the graphic in the font The marker could be referenced on the
master page with a variable. 

Good luck -
