    You are asking about how to create an extension but it may be more useful if you can clearly explain what the outcome is that you want. I don't understand the outcome at this point. Perhaps provide a screenshot of the page as it looks now, and how you want it to look, and provide links to the demo site if the screenshot does not make it clear what the page is.
