Open CMS Collection Page Template inside Popup Modal without using CMS Collection List

I have a page with ~100 text links.

Design constraints prevent me from using a CMS Collection List to display these links (I need 1 item on the first row of a table, 4 items on the second row of the table, 8 items on the third row of the table, etc. with differing font heights depending on row).

I would like to open a popup modal via text link and display a layout matching the CMS Collection Page Template. The URL would be taken from the CMS Collection Item.

Right now just linking the CMS Collection Item URL goes directly to that Item Page.

All solutions I have found for CMS Item modals require using a CMS Collection List in the first place rather than flexibility to link individual items manually.

I am currently using multiple CMS List’s with individual styling and specific filters applied to overcome my design restrictions while still using a CMS List.

The 20 CMS Lists per page limit will provide some additional challenges, but I have not found another way to target a specific CMS Item.
