[Wick van den belt]"To me, it seems that these are really just designed to be used in Premiere after creation, not in AE?"
That's right! They're for PP.
[Wick van den belt]" Iwould love to be able to reuse many of my assets (lower thirds, etc..) but from within AE, not Premiere Pro.
Does anyone know a good way to do this, if it's even possible at all?"

I do not understand. What does the essential graphics layout have to do with understanding templates? And to re use a piece you just copy and paste or import it into another project....i must be missing something.
