feature as reference for library parts

Currently Im looking into creating some furniture with SW. I want to use minifix(R) type of fasteners. You know - these small fellas that keep Ikea's Billy bookcase together, secured with screwdriver. I created library feature that takes two planes and an edge and creates proper holes. Now, I want to add fasteners and I would love to get behaviour of  snap hook and snap hook groove features - instead of pointing to walls and edges I can point to a featrue/part. When there are many conenctors, two more clicks per conenctor scale up pretty quickly.


And I want to have fasteners as separate parts so they show up in BOM.


My idea of workflow is create multibody part -> savea assembly -> BOMs, 2D drawings -> Dxf -> cutting ploter/part shop


Advice on any of these points will be more than welcome.
