I can't tell you what front end commands to use for your problem, but I have 
a suggestion. Have you thought about adding the line

Item["&Initialization Cell", InitializationCell->Toggle]

somewhere in the file If you do so, then you can click on 
the cell bracket you want to toggle, and then right click to get the popup 
menu (in Windows), and then select Initialization cell.
