You could use JavaScript to insert a reusable HTML Block in your DOM. With that you are even able to change the content, while the markup has the same structure.

While JavaScript could certainly be used to change the page dynamically while it is being displayed, what you describe might be more of a job for the server code.

The server side of the app could be designed to allow changes to be made to the pages before they are initially displayed to the end user. Web apps typically use parameters taken from a database to construct the pages to be displayed, and the data can be configured by the client at the server or through a separate customizing app.
