Dear Andre,

    I have have a functioning plot similar to the one you are
describing, it is a list plot within a list plot.  I have left in a few
of the options I used as suggestions  to make the small plot distinct
from the main plot.  I think you could just alter this basic form to
suit your needs.

   Background -> RGBColor[0.89, 0.93, 1],
   Prolog -> {AbsolutePointSize[6],
        Rectangle[Scaled[{0.18,0.16}], Scaled[{1,0.95}],
             Background -> RGBColor[0.94, 0.97, 1],
             PlotStyle -> RGBColor[1,0,0], Frame -> True,
             Prolog -> {AbsolutePointSize[4],
                Text[StyleForm["Small Graph Title",
                    FontColor -> RGBColor[0.11, 0.30, 0.53]
                  Scaled[{0.7,0.6}]   ](*Text*)   }(*Prolog*),
            DisplayFunction->Identity]       ](*Rectangle*)

Of course you may ignore all uses of (* *).
