As long as you see you can edit the profile in question, it looks like you need not be the Manager of that profile to add a project box or sticker.  It looks like this is what you might be looking for--the newest versions of the US Civil War project box and sticker: 

Project Box is now {{US Civil War Project}}
Sticker is now {{US Civil War}}

I see from the WikiTree project page for the US Civil War / War Between the States that there is a more detailed Sticker that can be placed in the Biography as long as you are able to edit the biography, and the format of that sticker can include a great deal more information:  

{{US Civil War
| enlisted = mmm dd, yyyy
| mustered = mmm dd, yyyy
| side = CSA or USA
| regiment flag = image file
| regiment name = regiment name
| unit = category to add profile to ((United States Civil War automatically added)
| rank = use if not given on the persons profile}}

And here is the page where I found that information, that also contains a great deal more information having to do with this Civil War project:
