I am using Benn Jan's esttab command for Stata and combining the results with my draft LaTeX document, using the useful tips provided by Jörg Weber. I want to include some non-standard results in my regression table, but separate them with a line and maybe associate them with a subtitle. The do-file in Stata would be something like this:

sysuse auto, clear
reg mpg weight length i.foreign, robust 
test weight+length=0 
estadd scalar f_test=r(F)
estadd scalar ppdiff=r(p)
lincom weight+length
estadd scalar marginal=r(estimate)

est store A

esttab A using auto.tex, replace nonotes nomtitles f ///
    label booktabs b(3) alignment(S) eqlabels(none) ///
    drop(0.foreign) star(* 0.10 ** 0.05 *** 0.01) stats(marginal f_test ppdiff N r2, ///
    fmt(3 3 3 %9.0gc 3) layout("\multicolumn{1}{c}{@}" "\multicolumn{1}{c}{@}" "\multicolumn{1}{c}{@}" "\multicolumn{1}{c}{@}" "\multicolumn{1}{c}{@}") ///
    labels(`"Hypothesis test"' `"F-test"' `"p-value"' `"Observations"' `"\(R^{2}\)"'))

And the related LaTeX code:

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[h]
    \caption{Auto example} 
    \estauto{auto}{3}{S[table-format=3.4]}
    \starnote
    \label{tab2}
\end{table}

\end{document}

How can I in this example insert a line between, say, "p-value" and "Observations" (by modifying the do-file only)? And if I want to insert some kind of identifier for this part of the table, how could I do that? Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.
