Thanks a lot for this really detailed post, this helps a lot.
So as it seems, the way you went with template_2 is indeed the right one in your case.
Sections, as Louis mentioned, will have a width of 100% by default. You can’t change that within the sections block options, because the sizing options in the panel do only affect the section wrapper, see:

If you need more help regarding this, happy to help.
