This is an easy one but I'm trying to relearn so bear with me. How do I nest a small portion of a timeline that is heavy with effects so I can replace the original tracks with a rendered version for easy play back?
You nest an entire sequence first, then cut all or part of that nest into another sequence as you desire. In your case, I would suggest creating that complex effects heavy part on a separate timeline, then nest or simply drag the sequence from the browser into your master sequence.
