You're describing the "markers from keywords" method. Basically, you define the text term and the corresponding marker text in a table and turn the program loose. Instant index.
With that as your method to generate markers, you need to build your tables. For this, you may want to look at "markers from heads" to get the table started and then edit it as you wish. If you have manually entered markers already, you can also collect and incorporate those into your table...
