OK, at least you know what to do now.
You can mostly automate the conversion of the footing row to a body
with Rick Quatro's TableCleaner plugin (www.frameexpert.com).
Then if the figure caption is a unique tag... copy an empty anchor or
body paragraph to the clipboard, search for the figure caption tag and
replace it with the contents of the clipboard.
