What you are wanting to do is create another frame on top of the 
original, which has all its own properties, such as line color (make 
sure you assign one since the default is None). Also, from what you 
show, it looks like the small one needs to set Text Flows Around Frame 
in Properties > Shape.

Now, if you want the word of the Title in the border, this is trickier, 
but can be done, most likely with a third frame superimposed on top. Or, 
Attach Text to Path.
