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.

Or something else?

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.
