I have just found the answer to my last question when I was revisiting the Hull Modeling Tutorial from this site.
The trick how to get parts of the control grid at random into a new layer was revealed on page 10 of this tutorial.
According to which one needs to make the interior edges visible and select faces of it (preferably whole clusters of them by having the ctrl key pressed during selection) which should be assigned to a layer.
Having the preferred layer active during this should yield the correct assignment.
That it worked can be seen from the different colouring of starboard and port half of my hull in shaded perspective view (see attached pic).
As I have both hull sides in different layers now I can at random toggle each of them visible or invisible which will enormously alleviate the shaping/fairing of sections and waterlines of my asymmetric stern.
