If you want such flexibility/customization of the UI element then I recommend using the UI related natives that were added in a recent patch. With these you can create full blown rich UI elements such as windows with buttons, images, etc. It may even be possible to use them to modify existing UI elements like multiboards, but I have not personally experimented with them so can only confirm that it works on the rest of the command UI such as mini-map, unit info panel etc.

If using a legacy version of Warcraft III then you are stuck with whatever the limitations of the multiboard are. To get around this people often used dedicated areas of the map with dummy units/destructables/effects/trackables as full screen rich UI, but these have a different set of limitations. There were even attempts to use floating models in front of the player camera to achieve something similar but as an overlay, but again it has its own set of limitations and problems.
