If the "custom" variants need to stay then the descriptions for each 
must state exactly what is the difference between the custom and not 
custom and when they should be used.
Currently, anyone who is not an FPC/Lazarus professional developer 
already, cannot decide based on the description.

I do not agree that the "Custom" variations will be used more BTW.
Anyone who is coming from Delphi/Kylix to move a web project over or 
start a new one will want to use web modules, actions, etc.
They are using the RAD Delphi or FPC/Lazarus for the reason that they do 
not need to do the basic work the "Custom" variations need. They want to 
focus on the development of the actual web module, it's actions, 
templates, web design and not the framework that is needed for them to work.

What's the problem with "dragging" in the LCL parts of the web 
development projects?
