Transforming multiple render passes as a single unit

We successfully imported the render passes into After Effects. We took four of those passes and arranged them in the composition called Render to build up the renders so it looks similar to the original beauty pass. The order and the blending modes we use are very important to do that. Now the fact that these render passes are on separate layers is both good and bad. The good part is you have a lot of flexibility, you can apply effects to anyone of these individually, so every layer can be adjusted separately from the other layers. For example, the shadow layer already has the invert effect on it but none of the other ones do.

I can go to any of these other ones and apply different effects. For example, just as a task, I can go up to Effect and apply a Blur, like a Gaussian Blur to the reflection. Once I apply effects, that effect is once again listed under Effects for that layer and also the Effect options show up in the Effect Controls panel. So if increasing blurriness here, I can blur out just...
