Thanks for the very detailed post information. Regretfully there isn't an option or feature in the theme that can do what you have in mind. It may be possible with custom development which is way beyond the scope of our support. Meanwhile, you may check out The Grid plugin or Essential Grid to display your grid with some built in effects. You can install it by going to X > Overview > Extensions. To know more how we have integrated these plugins, please check it out here:

Hope this helps.
