What is the circumstance of the temp bonus? Is it coming from an item, a class feature, or a spell? Or is it some other game element that is granting the bonus? (Note, if you are working on adding something from a closed source try to keep your answers generic, otherwise just throw the info right out there! :-) )
Having your template showing up in the Races/Template tab is perfectly acceptable if thats the way you wish to handle it. As to what the differences are between the templates on the R/T tab and those listed on the Inventory tab, if you review them you will find that those on the Inventory tab are a subset of those on the R/T tab. Those included on the Inventory tab have BONUS tags with the PREAPPLY tag on them. That is how we identify and make temporary bonuses available.
