you still have failed to explain what you are trying to do. I have
hardly ever seen the need to create formulas in notebooks the way you
are trying. Mathematica's Frontend is a nice WYSIWYG formula editor, why
are you bothering with the underlying boxes at all?

If you like Latex, why don't you try this:

TeXCell[s_String] :=
 ImportString["$\sum _{i=1}^n x_i$", "TeX"][[1, 1]]

  "Here is a formula:",
  TeXCell["$\sum _{i=1}^n x_i$"]

still wondering what the hell you are trying to achieve...
