Ok, now I understand.
If you set up your document for automatic text frames, this could be an
issue you would need to work around, but certainly you can break a link,
delete the frame you don't need (or convert to an image frame), then
relink around it. If you make the zoom small it might help this
As John says, linking is very flexible.
