Hi Varun,
not that easy to reply to your question quickly. Basically all spatial data
is handled by a backend server called GeoServer and exposed through
Opengeospatial Web Protocols.

So, in principle yes, is possible to do what you are asking, but, at least
with the default gis client integrated into GeoNode, there's no, let's say,
"user friendly" functionality to achieve that.

Long story short, most of the things you are asking should be probably
implemented on client-side, which means handling with Javascript and CSS.

There are other pluggable GIS clients that can be plugged into GeoNode
written using REACT. Also others around can be "relatively" easily
integrated into GeoNode. As an instance I know Boundless implementation is
using MapLoom (if I'm not wrong).
