Use frames instead. You can align the frame with any graphical object.

You didn't describe your footer. The simplest way to structure it is with a table. See example below for a "complex" header:


As can be seen from the gray background, most of contents come from fields (document properties but page number or count has the same effect -- they are my simple footer).

As a general rule, try to avoid frames whenever you can. Tuning frame anchor, position and wrapping is quite difficult, notably for a newbie.

Provide version no. It's because of my archeological interests.

Please add alterations of your post in your original question, don't start a new one.
