Yes. Try a small example. You can either create whole FM files as 2-c, and import as one inset, or create several differently-tagged flows in one FM document and import by flow name. Inset numbering should respect stream identifiers (T:, F:, etc) and incrementing counters ( <n+>), as well as counters in the form of <n=#>, where # is a number.

I'm not clear; are you trying to insert two-column layouts into the sidehead space, not across the full text-frame width? If so, try importing the insets into a side-head paragraph. Perhaps the reverse approach might be worth trying - import the single-column layouts into a two-column document.
