Passing Equipotential Signal through Two Circuits, One Symbol

I have a terminal blocks with 2 levels, two terminals each. I want this part to be flexible so I can use two different symbols whenever I please.

 

Right now I'm trying to use the manufacture part as follows:

N0-C:0, level 1

N1-C:1, level 1

N2-C:2, level 2

N3-C:3, level 2

 

First scenario:

Use each terminal as one symbol each, four total. Ideally with passing information within the same level 

Ex. Each below are their own symbols. This symbol contains one circuit and one terminal each.

TB 1, Lv1_1 Signal: foo

TB 1, Lv1_2 Signal: foo

TB 1, Lv2_1 Signal: bar

TB 1, Lv2_1 Signal: bar

 

If they're hyper passing between levels that'd be nice, but if not I can live with bridging the levels manually.

 

Scenario two

Use one symbol for each level, two symbols total. Passing information on the same level.

Ex. Each below are their own symbols. This symbol contains two circuits, with one terminal each.

TB 1, Lv1_1 + Lv1_2  Signal: foo

TB 1, Lv2_1 + Lv2_2  Signal: bar

 

Is this possible or do I need to make two different parts in my library to achieve this?

 

P.S. SWE is one of the most frustrating programs I've worked with.
