As a follow up, might I suggest another option, create the legend Block items as you wish
Export the legend blocks as an image and insert .
This will of course mean that if you restyle the layer you will have to redo the image, but its another option to try.

I have several blocks of legend in my composer that I group together to have

To do so I have to stretch each block so that the final version looks like
one single block and not several blocks put together:

A very annoying thing is that each time I refresh the composer, my legends
get refreshed to their original rectangle and I have to reshape everything
... I thought that if I locked the blocks they would not get refreshed - but
they do. I also tried to group them, but again they get refreshed. Is there
a way to keep the final shape?
Uncheck "resize to fit contents" under the legend item properties,
"main properties" section.

Also it took me a while to discover that to pick up several blocks one by
one you need to use the shift key and not the control key (as in most
software). Is it normal or is it something I can configure somewhere?
Shift is the standard used in layout/illustration packages. Ctrl
clicking cycles through selecting overlapping elements.
