I don't know what exactly your plans are, but I hope you already have 
contemplated using guides. You can place guides in your templates and 
turn on "snap to guides" in the view menu. So if you need editable 
frames of exactly the same size on each page, you can create them 
between those "magnetic" guides. The frames will snap to them.

Also, as Craig already mentioned, the scrapbook is your friend. I can 
tell from my own experience, that using guides and the scrapbook will 
let you work very fast, provided you prepared your document carefully.
