For the workflow you may want to look at the tasklist plugin. You can
track FIXME / TODO items (if they appear on a separate line) and find
back all open items in the text from the dialog. Should work fine in
combination with highlighting the text.

For meta text have a look at this feature request:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bug/1108760 it has a proof-of-concept
plugin attached that might be close to what you want for annotations
and summaries.

Current work ongoing will allow to improve that proof-of-concept and
make the side pane support formatting, links etc. as well.
