Have a look at the picture in the third edit of my question for explanation of the above comment.

comment Customised section overlapping in margin
I really appreciate you help. However I still need to step up the counter by one, for every first verse of every chapter, because I am using the chapter number as the number of the first verse. I guess it need something like \advance\msec@count by 1\relax in the correct place. I'm just not sure where.

@Yiannis Lazarides: Marc van Dongen is right. However I'll upvote you because your solution can be helpful in my future projects and comes close to what I want. Have a look at Marc's answer below, he's got it figured out, it seems.

You are right I unfortunately did not specify it. I took it for granted that the solutions would take the chapter verse layout into account. If you could add it and it works I'll accept your answer. If you really feel this should be a separate question I can create another one. And you can answer it there with the extra reset feature, then I'll accept that too.

This looks like the solution. I can't quite figure out which counter to reset to 1 for resetting my verses after a chapter so that they can start from 1 again.

@YiannisLazarides The numbers are verses in the Bible indeed.

Not a complete solution but it might help... Have a look at this answer to another question. Incidentally by egreg...

comment Prevent overlapping of elements on page
Thanks for your comments, but I really don't think the question is too vague. I'm asking whether there is a "general" command to detect overlaps of any kind, which will then alert you when it gets compiled, or prevent the overlap from occurring. I will build an MWE or two of specific problems I came across and add them to separate questions later. Working on documents of over 2500 pages it would really be helpful to detect overlaps without having to manually scan through the final product each time.

comment Use sections “inline”
I think I got it all working. Changing \refstepcounter{marginsec} to \refstepcounter{subsection} and \sbox0{\bfseries\themarginsec\quad} to \sbox0{\bfseries\thesubsection\quad} and also deleting \newcounter{marginsec}. The titlemarks picks it up well enough.

comment Use sections “inline”
You've hit the nail on the head on the look of it, but will the sections still work as normal for links in the TOC and bookmarks as well as the titlesec titlemarks? I'll try and implement this solution anyway to see for myself.
