    Why is it so important to not to create a new layer? Basically every semi-automated process in Qgis creates a new (temporary) layer, in order to prevent users from erasing data. You can use the Advanced digitizing tools and separate everything manually, but that can be a lot of work. – Erik Mar 8 '18 at 12:48
