Say that in a layout view of an MXD, I draw a simple rectangle.

Does a record of this rectangle exist anywhere in the project data in a way that can be edited or duplicated?

Reason: My team is attempting to create a graphic similar to a histogram and we would like to be able to bulk specify the placement of rectangles in the layout view.

You can do this in ArcPy by cloning a graphic element that is a rectangle, and then changing its position and size properties.
