Is it possible to create ID's for web elements

Hello,  

I'm new to Confluence.  I'm trying to interact with our Confluence pages using Excel Visual Basic.  In order to do so I need the 'element ID's" from the html.  (right click and hit 'Inspect' on the web page).   However, none of the elements I've created with a template appear to have element ID's associated with them.  Can someone tell me how to add element ID's to the tables, columns, text boxes, drop downs, etc on the pages I've created?

@shawn_carsten That would require you to be able to edit the way the HTML is generated to ensure the elements had an ID.  I am not aware of anyway to do this on Server and would guess it is not possible on cloud.  I am not aware of any apps that provide this functionality either.  

There are some marketplace apps that allow you to add your own HTML on a page but this would be very different from what you were asking for.

That sounds like it's exactly what I'm asking for.  Ideally I was hoping it could be done in confluence, but if I have to use a third party marketplace app then I guess that's what I have to do.  Could you tell me which marketplace you're referring to, or do you know a specific app that has that capability?
