You would need a drawing object with a script to do this.  Unfortunately, you can't record macros with Google Sheets.  Instead you have to use Google Apps Script to develop such applications.

I'm ok with that approach.  What do I insert and where?

I'm sorry, I'm a dead-end here. I've not developed any Apps Scripts.  :-(

Check the online help in GoogleDocs/sheets..type "Record macro" and see the short article about Apps Scripts.  There are some free beginner courses online that may help.

Sorry that I couldn't provide more-direct assistance.  I'll probably start developing Apps Scripts in the next year as more folks use Google Sheets.
